Masonry Connectors for Poured Concrete Back-up Walls

MASONRY CONNECTOR SYSTEM FOR POURED CONCRETE BACK-UP WALLS

FERO’s Shear™Connectors are a landmark design creation, and the simplicity of design, along with the efficiency of eliminating pressure on wall systems, is unique in the industry. All Shear™Connectors can use our optional insulation support that is pressed against the cavity insulation and held in place by the V-Tie and prevents separation during construction.

CALCULATING COST BENEFITS

The full cost benefit of using Fero Connectors can be seen when the entire wall system is calculated - reduced back-up wall thickness, reinforcement, and reduced load and therefore size of footings are factored into the final equation.

HOLED RAP TIE
Holed Rap Tie
  1. Allows 1.4" of vertical placement
spacer

The Holed Rap Tie transfers lateral load from the exterior masonry veneer to the structural backing with the use of one fastener. By using multiple fasteners, both shear and axial forces can be resisted, and this enables the entire wall assembly to function as a whole. The wall thickness (including the veneer and structural backing) work to limit lateral load, offering reduced lateral deflections and increased resistance.

HEAVY DUTY HOLED RAP TIE

The Heavy Duty Holed Rap Tie also transfers lateral load from the exterior masonry veneer to the structural backing with the use of one fastener. By using multiple fasteners, both shear and axial forces can be resisted, and this enables the entire wall assembly to function as a whole. The wall thickness (including the veneer and structural backing) work to limit lateral load, offering reduced lateral deflections and increased resistance.

The increased depth of the Heavy-Duty Plate (3 in., 75mm) allows for greater placement tolerance while maintaining optimal V-Tie location.

SLOTTED RAP TIE
Slotted Rap Tie Type 2
  1. Allows 1.2" of vertical placement
 

Our Slotted Rap (Rod Adjustable Plate) Tie affixes masonry veneer walls to a structural concrete backing directly, and transfers tensile and compressive lateral loads

Slotted Rap Ties transfer loads that are perpendicular to a wall, but they are not designed to create unified wall assembly resistance.

HEAVY DUTY SLOTTED RAP TIE
Slotted Block Tie Type 2
  1. Allows 2.17" of vertical placement
 

Our Heavy Duty Slotted Rap (Rod Adjustable Plate) Tie affixes masonry veneer walls to a structural concrete backing directly, and transfers tensile and compressive lateral loads

Slotted Rap Ties transfer loads that are perpendicular to a wall, but they are not designed to create unified wall assembly resistance.

The increased depth (3" 75mm) of the Heavy-Duty Plate allows for greater placement tolerance while maintaining optimal V-Tie location.

For a system that best resists movement, shear and load in cavity walls, we recommend either the Holed Rap Tie or Heavy-Duty Holed Rap Tie Connectors.
