Basement Water­pro­ofing and Cavity Wall Ties

Basement conversion is such a popular and effective method of creating extra space while saving money; many customers carry out extensive basement wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng work using Twistfix solutions including wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng membrane, electro osmosis and waterproof paint. We also provide an innovative wall-tie system that solves a common problem; how to build a cavity wall with an internal water­pro­ofing membrane.

Many contractors face th issue of being unable to find a wall tie that will allow one wall leaf to be tied to another without compro­mis­ing the integrity of the basement-wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng system. Twistfix have developed a quick, reliable and cost-effective solution in the form of our wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng wall tie system, which combines a stainless steel helical tie with a hammer-in wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng plug to give professional results every time.

The tie comprises an effective fastener arrangement manufactured from tough, high-grade stainless steel. Multiple drip points allow for efficient water shedding and the strong polyp­ro­pyle­ne wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng plug is pre-fitted with a soft seal to facilitate in­stal­la­ti­on. Each of these plugs is friction-fit, designed for driving into pre-drilled pilot holes through the basement wa­ter­proofing membrane and into the wall beyond, securely attaching the membrane and allowing it to prevent water ingress.

Each helical brick tie features a pointed end which allows to fit neatly and exactly into a central recessed aperture - this is located at the sealing plug’s head. The cavity tie is hammered into this recess and an integral screw-connection is provided within.
