Guidelines for Usage
The current type and density of wall ties is controlled by the area of unsupported brickwork, the exposure to wind, the cavity size and the nature of the structure. Detailed recommendations can be found in the following productions:- I.S. 268 – Specification for metal ties for cavity wall construction B.S. 5628 Parts 1 and 2 – Use of Masonry
