Quality bricklaying

Spotted a gap in the market? Appropriately named Mick Gapper did, and he plugged it with his own invention Ė Laurenís Ladder. It makes soldiers stand to attention!

Twelve years ago, FMB MasterBond member Mick Gapper, of Lauren Builders in Peterborough, was called in to rectify work started by another contractor on a school. Mick could see at first glance that the soldier courses above and below window openings had been built with little care, and this error was enough to make the whole building look shoddy - and break Building Regulations.

How Lauren's Ladder Works

Mick has designed Laurenís Ladder, a piece of equipment which makes building a soldier course, quick, easy and accurate. It can be used on a doorway, a garage opening or band coursing all the way to infinity!

Made of high quality, lightweight aluminium, each kit consists of two ladders, two clamps, bolts and adjusters. The device is rested across the gap where the soldier course is to be laid and is bolted into position. Read more
