Wall ties are an essential element for the stability of a cavity wall structure, tying its weather protecting brick facade to the main body of a building. An effective brick tie system transfers static and live loads across the cavity, enabling load sharing by both inner and outer walls.
Stainless steel helical wall ties are the choice of the professional for tying masonry walls.
The Self tapping 9mm replacement cavity wall ties screw in to brick, masonry or concrete when hammered into pilot holes (circa 6mm) using the impact action of a hammer drill. The Thor Helical Drive Tie grips within an interlocking helical undercut.
Helical brick ties are suitable for remedial use in all wall types without exerting expansive stress on the masonry. The unique driving configuration of the Thor Helical Drive Fix Tie delivers a fast, easy and reliable remedy for cavity tie failure.
