Lateral Restraint Ties
Lateral restraint ties are designed for restraining bowing walls to structural timbers that run parallel to them. The ties are used to connect a masonry façade to the flooring diaphragm via two or more timber joists.
- The lateral restraint wall tie is for restraining bulging walls
- Tying the wall to two or more timber side joists or studs using these 8mm diameter stainless steel ties
- The lateral restraints are fitted from outside the property with a minimum of disturbance in most cases just lift a few floorboards to determine the position of the joists and to ensure hidden wires or pipes are avoided during the installation
- Each restraint tie has a drill-like leading end for cutting into softwood
- Using a SDS drill, simply wind the lateral restraints (using the installation tool) into the timbers and resin fix the masonry end
- Quick and Easy installation
- Economical to use 304 austenitic stainless steel
- Minimal disruption
- Prevents timber splitting
- Allows for normal movement
- High performance
- Easy selection
- Smart finished appearance (No wall plates)
