Our Side Mounting Rap (Rod Adjustable Plate) Tie affixes masonry veneer walls directly to a structural backing stud without any intervening materials (like sheathing).

  1. Reduces the likelihood of corrosion near the fastener/structural member intersection
  2. Reduces deformation caused by load minimizes moisture load
  3. Restrains components to eliminate disengagement
  4. Reduces movement and free play

Side Mounted Rap TieDesigned to Transfer Tensile and Lateral Loads

Our Side Mounting Rap Tie transfers tensile and lateral loads to the stud backing. The flat plate is fastened to the side surface of the structural backing, which may be steel, wood, or miscellaneous metal.

The vertical functionality of the Side Mounting Rap Tie enables it to resist movement, vertical shear forces and axial forces, and its ability to unify the entire wall assembly to work as one singular component reduces the need to reinforcement, additional wall thickness or materials.

STM ChurchHoles 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.

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.

VpTieV-Ties for the Rap Tie 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.

FERO connectors and accessories include complete documentation with descriptions, technical illustrations and images. Installation requirements and methods are clearly detailed.
