Flexible timber frame wall ties for fixing timber frame structures to a brick or masonry facade on new build or for retrofit, where insufficient ties have been installed.
The self tapping wall tie is hammered into timber studs for a screw-in connection at one end and, at the other, is encapsulated within the mortar bed. A continuous helix ensures multiple drip points between the timber frame and the brick masonry wall.
Having nominal diameter of 5mm and a cross sectional area of just 6.25mm2 this timber frame tie is the most flexible helical wall tie on the market, accommodating differential movement in 2 & 3 storey dwellings having a wall height less than 15m. CE marked for new construction.
Timber frame ties should be installed at a density of 4.4 ties per square metre for buildings on flat sites within towns and cities where the basic wind speed is up to 25m/s and altitude is not more than 150m above sea level.
Timber frame wall ties are sold in packs of 250
