Prevent damp and improve thermal insulation
The tie in a cavity wall is used to tie the internal and external walls (or leaves) constructed of bricks or cement blocks together, making the two parts to act as a homogeneous unit. It is placed in the cavity wall during construction and spans the cavity. The ends of the tie are designed to lock into the mortar.
Vertical or horizontal cracks in brickwork – Normally caused by expansion of corroded wall ties. As the tie corrodes, the rust or metallic oxide that is produced takes up more space than the original tie did and due to this the bricks above and below the tie are forced apart cracking the mortar bed. To fix older wall ties, we offer alternative, corrosive resistant wall ties with the use of anti-corrosive Safeguard Stainless Steel Ties.
