The use of Bricktie allows the construction of collar-jointed walls – made up from two thinner blocks. By tying the two masonry leaves together, the wall may be designed as though it were solid construction.
Bricktie provides an effective and time-saving solution to most wall combinations and consists of a 20 x 3 mm flat tie welded to two longitudinal flattened reinforcing wires.
Bricktie is available in 175mm wide strips, to suit 215 mm collar-jointed wall constructed from two leaves of 100 mm blockwork.
Bricktie is widely used for tying and reinforcing composite masonry walls.
The use of Bricktie also enable a fair-faced block finish to both sides of the wall by adopting a collar-joint construction. Similarly, a single solid brick wall 215mm in thickness can be constructed using stretcher bond coursing without the need for any additional ties.
