Remedial Wall Ties
Easi-Fix Helical Drive Tie is a 304 stainless-steel finned helical tie. It is designed to be used to anchor building façades to structural members, stabilise multiple width brick walls or as remedial wall ties to re-tie a wide range of differing materials like air-crete blocks, clay bricks, stone, concrete blocks and timber studs.
The Easi-Fix Helical Drive Tie is installed using a proprietary setting tool that is used with an SDS-Plus shank hammer drill to drive and countersink the tie. The helical design allows the tie to be driven quickly and easily into a 5.5mm pre-drilled pilot hole. As the tie is driven into the substrate, the fins of the tie undercut the masonry to provide an expansion-free anchorage that will withstand tension and compression loads.
Once installed the Easi-Fix Helical Drive Tie provides a mechanical connection between a masonry façade and its backup material or between multiple widths of brick.
The Easi-Fix Helical Drive Tie is the faster, easier and more reliable way to tie facades together.
Installation of Helical Remedial Wall Ties
To Install the Permagard Easi-Fix Helical Drive Ties you will need to drill a 5.5mm pilot hole into the substrate and use the Easi-Fix Helical Drive Tie SDS Install Tool.
Please note that in some dense substrates (engineering bricks) it may be necessary to drill a 10mm countersunk hole into the substrate approximately 10-20mm so the head of the tie can be completely lost in the substrate and does not protrude from the surface.
For installation of Permagard Easi-Fix Helical Drive Ties, a light hammer drill is recommended i.e. no more than 1.5NM impact and not less than 3000 impacts per minute.
