Can you use the RICON S VS beam hanger systems in masonry?

Yes, the RICON S VS beam hangers can be used in masonry
Normal ricon RICON S VS is one of the most versatile beam hangers systems, capable of connecting to steel, concrete and wood. It is also possible to connect the Ricon S VS to masonry; however, this truly depends on the type of anchors used for the connection to the masonry.
The following should be considered in the design:
  1. Specifying a sufficient number of anchors. The shear capacity for the anchors in total should be greater than the load rating of the RICON S VS beam beam hangers.
  2. Anchor head should be small enough to allow for the sliding of the two RICON S VS plates in place. Generally, a countersunk anchor head thinner than ¼” is recommended for this application.
With the above recommendations, the Beam Hanger System can easily be dropped into place at the job site, utilizing its biggest advantages.
