Use this wall tie testing kit to tension test remedial ties. The pull-out tester has an integral bridging unit. It houses a mechanical pulling arrangement and a load cell. The unit has a 3.5 kN gauge that measures tensile loads. The kit includes a test key to fit 9 mm helical wall ties.
Use the tension tester to assess product suitability when designing a wall tie replacement scheme. Alternatively, use it for quality control while installing a remedial tying system.
What service load value should you apply for tie testing? Check our guide to establish proof loads for wall ties per BRE Digest 401.
If you need to test a different diameter tie, speak to one of our expert advisors. They will happily provide the wall tie tester with the key to suit.
Twistfix recommends testing remedial wall ties to check anchorage strength at inner and outer wall connections. Apply tensile pull-out load to the values shown in Table 5 of BRE Digest 401: Replacing Wall Ties.
