Types and Uses

Masonry and concrete construction projects all require wall ties, anchors and restraint fixings to ensure the stability and functionality of construction panels. There are numerous ties and fixings available in the marketplace which come in a huge array of sizes and are used for many construction applications including brick-to-block construction, thin-joint blockwork, timber frames, steel frames, cavities over 150mm and cellular clay blocks.

Wall ties are a key component in the stability of cavity walls and the correct selection, spacing and installation of ties is essential to avoid damp penetration and the distortion of brickwork. Many factors should be taken into account when specifying fixings such as the cavity width, type and height of the building and its location.

Today’s modern manufacturers have developed an enormous range of cost-effective and practical solutions for industry sectors such as housing, commercial and infrastructure.
