IG continually set the standard in windpost design. With a nationwide team of experienced engineers at your disposal, we continue to set ourselves apart from the rest.

IG manufacture three types of windpost. The U wind post is installed within the cavity and will normally span between floor structures, with the same principle applying to the DU Windpost. Both designs leave the inner leaf of the cavity wall undisturbed. The LP Windpost is designed to be built into the inner skin of the cavity wall and normally span between floor structures.

Material Specification

IG Windposts are manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel (grade 316 is available if required). The IG Technical Team will provide full product specification and schedules.

Connections & Wall Ties

All IG Windposts are supplied with specifically designed base and upper connections and fixings. They are also supplied with a suitable number of wall-ties which will vary in relation to the post type used and the cavity width. There are five types:

U Tie For use with U & DU Windposts.
L50 Tie – For use with LP Windposts (50mm cavity).
L75 Tie For use with LP Windposts (75mm cavity).
L100 Tie For use with LP Windposts (100mm cavity).
L Shear Tie  For use with LP Windposts.
