Twistfix supplies Ancon PPS slip ties for use at movement joints. The movement ties restrain masonry against lateral wind loads whilst allowing brick walls and masonry panels to expand or contract.
Each 200mm stainless steel tie body has a plain end and a perforated end; and has a debonding sleeve that fits over the plain end end. The sleeve should be installed leaving a 10mm gap at the end of the tie to allow for expansion of brickwork. Ties should be installed at 300mm centres and conventional cavity wall ties should be installed either side of the expansion joint.
The debonding ties can be used in new build cavity wall having a vertical movement joint or in retrofit work where the remedial installation of an expansion joint is cut into and existing brick wall. Ancon PPS slip ties are sold in packs of 20
