2 PART TIES

Technical Data

The 2 Part Tie is a standard duty cavity wall tie designed to exceed the requirements of a Type 2 Tie up to a 450mm cavity as described in PD 6697: 2010 when installed in line with the following guidance. The tie is resistant to water crossing a cavity due to the unique connection feature. This feature serves to prevent the transgression of water from the outer to the inner leaf of a building even when installed with an angle of up to 5° in an unfavourable direction. The minimum mortar joint thickness for which this tie is intended for use is 10mm.

FS2D FRAME CRAMP WITH DRIP

Technical Data

The FS2D Frame Cramp Tie is a multi purpose frame cramp designed in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 845-1. The tie is designed to allow a masonry panel to be tied back to a range of structures/substrates meaning one tie can fulfil a range of applications on site. The advanced punched and pressed profile of the tie means that it is capable of withstanding high loads as a result of its increased sectional properties. A standard de-bonding sleeve can be supplied for use at movement joints. The minimum mortar joint thickness for which this tie is intended for use is 10mm. Slot size is 7mm x 20mm. Upstand is 40mm.

Installation & Best Practice Wall ties should typically be installed at a density of at least 2.5 ties/ m2 for walls in which both leaves are thicker than 90mm. This can be achieved by spacing the ties at 900mm horizontal centres and 450mm vertical centres, staggered at alternate courses. Wall ties should be evenly distributed over a wall except around openings or at an un-bonded panel edge where the tie density should be increased to 225mm vertical centres within 225mm of the opening or edge. The length of the tie should be sufficient to allow an embedment of at least 62.5mm meaning that the minimum embedment of 50mm is always achieved after allowing for site tolerances. Tests performed by LUCIDEON Limited proved that the FS2D tie meets the requirements of BS EN 846 – 5: 2012 & BS EN 846 – 6: 2012 tested under compression and tension. FS2D tie is an asymetrical wall tie as defined in BS EN 845 – 1: 2012

The C2 Shear Movement Tie is a designed to tie two leaves of masonry together at a vertical movement joint. It is designed to allow in axis movement of up to +/-10mm whist resisting the applied shear loads subjected to the tie in service. The tie has been tested in line with the requirement of BS EN 846-7 to establish a declared shear load capacity which can be used in the design of a movement joint in a masonry panel.

Many other types of ties can be sourced and specially made.
