Full Product Description

Platinum Neoprene Mechanical Wall Ties are an advanced solution for cavity wall reinforcement and stability. These ties are meticulously designed to provide superior performance in both replacing and supplementing existing wall ties, particularly in brick or blockwork structures. Their construction utilises high-quality A2 304 grade stainless steel, ensuring longevity and resistance to corrosion, making them an ideal choice for durable construction projects.

The wall ties feature brass locking nuts that secure the installation firmly, preventing any loosening over time. This robust locking mechanism is complemented by anti-slip knurled nuts that work in conjunction with the ridged neoprene spreaders, offering exceptional grip and uninterrupted expansion. This design innovation ensures that the ties maintain a strong hold, even under varying structural loads and environmental conditions.

A notable feature of Platinum Neoprene Mechanical Wall Ties is the fitted drip ring. This component provides additional protection by allowing movement between the two leaves of the wall, preventing water ingress and ensuring the integrity of the cavity. This feature is particularly beneficial in maintaining the thermal and moisture barriers within the cavity, contributing to the overall efficiency and longevity of the building structure.

The ties are designed for easy, single-tool installation, making them a practical choice for both professional contractors and DIY enthusiasts. The inner leaf connection can be checked and adjusted before securing the outer leaf, ensuring a precise and secure fit. This user-friendly installation process reduces time and labour costs, enhancing the overall efficiency of construction projects.

Platinum Neoprene Mechanical Wall Ties are available in three sizes: 150mm for cavity widths of 0mm to 40mm, 200mm for cavity widths of 40mm to 70mm, and 225mm for cavity widths of 60mm to 70mm. This range of sizes accommodates various construction requirements, providing flexibility and adaptability to different project specifications.

The performance of these wall ties is backed by impressive pull-out strengths:

Substrate Suitability:

Platinum Neoprene Mechanical Wall Ties are designed for use in various masonry substrates, including brick, blockwork, and concrete.

They are suitable for domestic dwellings and small commercial buildings up to three storeys high and no greater than 15 metres in height.

These wall ties are ideal for projects involving brick or blockwork of similar thickness. They are not recommended for use in timber frame buildings.

 

Preparation:

Before starting the installation, ensure you have the necessary tools: a Wall Tie Setting Tool, an SDS Rotary Power Drill, and an 11mm SDS Masonry Drill Bit.

Begin by examining the outer and inner leaves of the wall to confirm their suitability for drilling and the installation of the ties. Ensure that the surfaces are sound and free from loose materials.

Check the cavity width to select the appropriate size of the Platinum Neoprene Wall Ties – 150mm for 0mm to 40mm cavity width, 200mm for 40mm to 70mm cavity width, and 225mm for 60mm to 70mm cavity width.

 

Application Method:

Start by using an 11mm SDS Masonry Drill Bit to drill a hole through the brick of the outer leaf. Incline the drill slightly upwards to ensure optimal placement of the tie. Drill through the outer leaf until you reach the cavity. When the tip of the drill touches the inner leaf, set the depth gauge to 70mm to ensure the correct drilling depth into the inner leaf.

Proceed to drill into the inner leaf. If the inner leaf is made of blockwork, turn off the drill’s hammer action to prevent damage to the blockwork. Continue drilling until the required depth is achieved. After drilling, it is crucial to remove all dust and debris from the bore hole. Use an airline or air pump to thoroughly clean the hole, ensuring a clean surface for the installation of the wall tie.

Next, prepare your cordless drill by attaching the Wall Tie Setting Tool into the chuck. Set the drill’s clutch/torque to three-quarters strength. Insert the end of the wall tie into the Wall Tie Setting Tool. Begin drilling at medium speed and push the tie to the back of the drilled hole. It is important to ensure there is “friction” when the tie passes through the outer leaf. If there is no friction, pre-expand the tie slightly before insertion to ensure a snug fit. When the clutch operates, indicating that the tie is set, the installation is complete.

 

Finishing:

After the wall tie is securely set, inspect the installation to ensure the tie is firmly in place and there is no movement.

If needed, adjust the outer leaf connection to confirm that it is properly tightened. This step is crucial to ensure the structural integrity and stability of the wall. Clean up any remaining debris or dust from the installation area to maintain a neat workspace.

Proper finishing ensures that the wall tie is correctly positioned and ready to provide long-lasting support.
