The terraced and semi-detached properties were in need of replacement cavity wall ties due to the age of the properties. The original wall ties had corroded within the cavity wall and needed to be replaced as part of the housing renewal scheme.
Installing Thor Helical Drive Tie using the Drive Tie Tool and an SDS drill
Remedial Restoration chose the Thor Drive Fix Tie as the replacement wall tie of choice for the project. The Thor Drive Fix Tie gave a quick and easy solution to the scheme. The Thor Drive Fix Tie allows quick installation and the advantage of smaller diameter drilling sizes which gives less visual damage to the brickwork. In all over 120,000 wall ties were installed during the schemes.
Thor Helical Remedial gave regular onsite guidance and support right through the project including meeting with the main contractor and carrying out routine testing for the local authorities involved in the projects.
