The Rubble Stone Support transfers loads that are perpendicular to a wall, but they are not designed to resist parallel forces.

The holed Plate is mortared directly into a head joint in the structural backing. This creates a stable integration and it reduces any play, deflection or connector deterioration. The Support is mechanically fastened to two or more Plates and the V-Tie is inserted into the corresponding slot in the Support, providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement.

Insulation SupportOur Insulation Support (optional) is inserted over the end of the plate and is pressed against the Support, enabling it to affix any insulation safely in place.

VpTieV-Ties are available in a wide variety of standard lengths to accommodate various thicknesses of rubble veneer and cavity wall spaces.

Design measurements, specifications and regulations differ between Canada and US industries, and we accommodate for both sets of standards and regulations.

All FERO connectors and accessories include complete documentation with descriptions, technical illustrations and images. Installation requirements and methods are clearly detailed.
