Designed to Transfer Lateral Loads While Accommodating Construction Tolerances.
Slotted Block Ties transfer lateral load, they are not designed to resist movement vertically, and this can reduce the effectiveness of the entire wall assembly to function in a combined manner. For products that better resist movement, shear and load in cavity walls, view our ShearConnector suite of products.
The Slotted 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 singular slot in the plate allows up to 2 inches of vertical play to accommodate construction tolerances, and this ensures proper V-Tie alignment flexibility for any joint regardless of where the Block Plate is embeded.
V-Ties are available in a wide variety of standard lengths to accommodate various thicknesses of masonry 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.
Our 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.
