An ideal retrofit solution for the tying layers of variable quality masonry to perpendicular walls, the kit represents impressive cost-effectiveness when it comes to concealed masonry stitching.
The brick pin fixing kit contains:
- 10 heavy-duty masonry stitching bars. Each bar is one metre in length, has a diameter of 8mm and is manufactured using high-quality stainless steel, noted for its remarkable resistance to corrosion
- One 10kg tub of WHO 60, a specially-formulated masonry repair bonding grout

Firstly, pre-drilled pilot holes are made. The holes are filled with WHO-60 polymer modified masonry repair grout, into which the helical stitching bars are inserted, bonding the reinforcement securely to the masonry. The result is strengthened, stabilised areas of wall failure, where tensile forces are evenly redistributed along the length of the helical bars.
