    Need to repair sagging brick soldier course (outer skin of cavity wall construction) above 2m span window.

    Know I can use Acro props to stablise brickwork above before cutting out triangular section of failed brickwork.

    Is there an alternative method using a length of steel plate and steel pins/needles, fixed along a section of brickwork 10 courses or so (top of the failed triangle) above window, supported by the brick piers either side of window?

    Why would I want to do this? I've got an issue with supporting the bottom of the Acro props.

    What about Strongboys above <u>and below</u> the window so the Acro props aren't in contact with the ground?
