Designed to Transfer Lateral Loads
Our Slotted Rap Tie transfers tensile and compressive lateral loads to the stud backing. The L-shaped Plate is fastened to the facing surface of the structural backing, which may be steel, wood, or miscellaneous metal.
The V-Tie is inserted into the slot and allows 2 inches of vertical play to align with the grout bed. After set-up the V-Tie providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement.
It must be noted that Slotted Rap Ties transfer loads that are perpendicular to a wall, but they are not designed to create unified wall assembly resistance. For products that best resist shear and load in cavity walls, view our ShearConnector products.
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.
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. Please view the appropriate regional documentation for dimensions, diagrams and specifications.
