HEAVY DUTY HOLED RAP TIE

Our Heavy Duty Holed Rap Tie affixes masonry veneer walls to a structural backing either directly, or by surface mounting to any sheathing sitting over a stud.

BENEFITS OF HEAVY DUTY HOLED RAP TIES
  1. Easy installation to studs or structural sheathing
  2. Restrains components to eliminate disengagement
  3. Reduces movement and free play
  4. Reduces deformation caused by load
  5. Deeper plate alows greater tolerance for optimal alignment

HD Rap TieDesigned To Transfer Lateral Loads


Our Heavy Duty Holed Rap Tie transfers lateral loads to the structural backing. The L-shaped, 16-gauge steel Plate is fastened to the surface of the structural backing.

Holes sit along the far end of the Plate, and the V-Tie is inserted into the corresponding hole, providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement.

The functionality of the Heavy Duty Holed Rap Tie is to transfer 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.

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

On an existing cavity wall where structural support is required to reduce lateral inflection, Rap Ties may be an effective retrofitting system to employ.

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