The need for remedial wall ties was established in the early 1980’s, when wall tie failure was discovered as being a widespread problem.
Before then the standard wall ties were typically manufactured from mild steel and commonly protected by a sacrificial zinc coating. Tie irons were expected to last the lifetime of a building. Surprisingly, as it was subsequently discovered, wall tie corrosion could become a major issue in as little as 26 years.
Where an existing wall tie system has failed through corrosion or improper installation then replacement wall ties are a vital part of a remedial solution that strengthens and stabilises vulnerable cavity wall structures.
Thor Helical 9mm Remedial wall ties offer rapid wall tie replacement and reliable brick pinning installation. 316 grade stainless steel helical ties are the recommended choice of the professional for tying masonry walls. The SDS drive tool which holds and hammer-drives the wall ties permits safer controlled installation of the CD Tie.
