Designed to Transfer Lateral Loads In Light Structural Back-Up Walls
Our Slotted Side Mounting Rap Tie provides a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement. The single slot in the tie each allows up to 1.2 inches of vertical play, and this ensures vertical flexibility for a joint in relationship to the structural backing.
The vertical functionality of the Slotted Side Mounting Rap Tie enables it to resist tensile and compressive lateral loads, and its ability to unify the entire wall assembly to work as one singular component may reduce the need for reinforcement, additional wall thickness or materials.
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.
It must be noted that Slotted Stud Ties transfer loads that are perpendicular to a wall, but they are not designed to resist parallel forces. For products that best resist shear and load in cavity walls, view our Stud Shear™Connector product.
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.
