Designed To Transfer Lateral Loads
Our Heavy Duty Slotted 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.
The slot sits along the far end of the Plate, and the V-Tie is inserted providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement.
The Heavy Duty Slotted Rap Tie provides a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement. The singular slot in the tie allows up to 2 inches of vertical play, and this ensures vertical flexibility for any joint regardless of where the Plate was fastened to the structural backing.
V-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.
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.
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.
