The 2300 Range Column Tie is a high-performance tie used in collar joint or double leaf applications where the cavity does not exceed 25mm. With its ability to perform well in cavity wall applications with no risk of water bridging the cavity, it marks its unique strength in the market.
Versatile yet Precise
The adaptable 2300 Range Tie is a deftly designed column tie that complies with all the requisite standards. Designed to be used in cavity applications not exceeding 25mm, it stands out as a robust solution for the specific needs of construction projects.
The 2300 Range Tie is crafted from either Grade 304 (BS EN 1.4301) or Grade 316 (BS EN 1.4401) austenitic stainless steel. Its material composition allows it to be classified as A1 non-combustible, providing an added layer of safety to its structural benefits. The A1 classification implies it makes “no contribution to fire,” mitigating fire risks.
Calculated Thermal Properties
For thermal modelling applications, the 2300 Range Tie features a cross-sectional area of 38mm² and a thermal conductivity of 17W/mK. This combination allows for precise calculations of the tie’s impact on the panel, ensuring optimal thermal performance.
Tested for Optimum Load Bearing
As per the tests, the 2300 Range Tie has a declared shear load capacity of 2500N. The design resistance of these shear ties complies with BS EN 845-1, ensuring the maximum possible load-bearing capacity. The partial factor for use with ancillary components is specified as 3.0 for sites in the UK, further endorsing its structural integrity.
