The Fast Track masonry support system, developed by IBP, can transform a basic building into a structure of elegance and warmth, as well as economy. Unlike conventional stone-veneer finishes, Fast Track does not require a concrete footing to support the weight of the masonry. This feature alone can yield considerable savings.
The system weighs as little as 14 pounds per square foot. It is easily designed into new projects using conventional construction techniques or attaches to most structures using existing wall studs. (See guidelines.)
Fast Track can help builders achieve LEED objectives. Aluminum channels and clips have at least 25% post-consumer recycled content, and the entire system can be dismantled and re-purposed as the building's uses change over its life cycle.
Imagine the Possibilties
Fast Track is as versatile as it is lightweight. It can be used as an accent wall, as a complement or counterpart to conventional stone veneers, even in horizontal applications such as soffits.
IBP can provide job-specific engineered stamped drawings and other in-house technical assistance. For details, ask your IBP/Acme Brick representative.
Natural limestone and lightweight cast-stone panels are available for the system, in 4 standard nominal sizes: 8" x 24", 12" x 24", 16" x 24" and 24" x 24". Custom sizes may be available by special order. Please ask your local representative for the most up-to-date selection.
