3200 Frame Cramp

The 3200 range tie is a versatile, multi-purpose frame cramp designed in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 845-1. This tie allows a masonry panel to be tied back to various structures or substrates, which means it can serve a range of applications on site. Notably, the tie is designed to exceed the requirements of a Type 2 cavity as described by PD6697.

The tie is engineered to resist water crossing a cavity, thanks to the integrated ‘drip’ features that prevent the transgression of water from the outer leaf to the inner leaf of a building. This is even effective when installed at an angle of up to 5° in an unfavorable direction. The tie is intended for use in a minimum mortar joint thickness of 10mm.

A variety of corrosion-resistant fixings is available to suit different applications. The list below represents typical fixings used. For more information or alternative fixings, please contact the technical department.

Fixing Types:

  • Concrete: M6 Stainless Steel (S/S) Coach Screw & SX8 Plug, M6 S/S Expansion Anchor
  • Steel: M5.5 BZP Self Drilling Tech Screw
  • Block: M6 S/S Coach Screw & SX8 Plug
  • Timber: M6 S/S Coach Screw, NO 12 Posi Pan Head S/S Wood Screw


Installation & Best Practice:

Wall ties should typically be installed at a density of at least 2.5 ties/m2 for walls where both leaves are thicker than 90mm. This density can be achieved by spacing the ties at 900mm horizontal centers and 450mm vertical centers, staggered at alternate courses.

Wall ties should be evenly distributed across a wall, with the exception of areas around openings or at an un-bonded panel edge. In these areas, the tie density should be increased to 225mm vertical centers within 225mm of the opening or edge.

The length of the tie should be sufficient to allow an embedment of at least 62.5mm. This ensures that the minimum embedment of 50mm is always achieved, even after accounting for site tolerances.

The 3200 range tie is a reliable, versatile, and efficient solution for securing masonry panels, offering superior performance across a variety of construction projects.

Madelaine Pieterse

Regional Manager

Madelaine has always worked in construction so she knows her way around the industry, but she will often get lost in her own town.

Born in South Africa, Madelaine swapped the stunning sunshine in Cape Town for the cloudy charm of Belfast. We’re not sure what made her make this decision, starting a new life in Ireland isn’t for the faint-hearted.

Madelaine is mother to two sons 22 and 25 who she loves to spend her time with, watching them mature into handsome men.

Grayson GB - Jim Martin

Jim Martin

Regional Manager

Our regional manager Jim likes to pretend that he is ‘pure Scottish’ but secretly he’s half English. Now, we ‘dinnae ken’ why he’s proud of his Scottish ancestry, but each to their own!

Despite his Scottish routes, Jim is great at his job, there’s no denying that.

You won’t often see Jim cracking up in the office, but we suppose there isn’t a lot to laugh at up in Scotland so he’s probably out of practice.

Helen Gibson

Regional Manager

Helen spends most of her time playing with her orchestra. She claims that her biggest passion is music, but then again, her instrument of choice is the flute.

Playing her flute isn’t the only music that Helen makes, she is the proud owner of a big laugh that bounces off every corner of the office. More often than not, you will hear her laugh before you see her!

Helen’s a single girl, and enjoys meeting up with friends for nights out at the cinema, eating out and keeping the local Brew Dog in business!! She says she doesn’t drink much…. we know different!

Grayson GB - Andy Hanselman - v2

Andy Hanselman

Non-Executive Chair

Andy isn’t technically an employee here at Grayson but insisted on having his biography on the team page. His interesting choice of dedication as a Sheffield United fan is a big controversy to the many Wednesday fans in the office.

Ex-miner and world-renowned customer experience expert (well, that’s what he says!), Andy combines his public speaking with his love for travelling the world – and still manages to make it back to the Grayson Directors meetings to make the team jealous of his adventures.

Always returning to his roots, guiding Grayson in Rotherham… and beyond.

Clare Spivey

Sales & Marketing Director

Although she won’t admit it, Clare has been in the game a long time.

Supplying power tools and fixings was her first job in the construction industry. Due to this she has the ability to spot a tool a mile off.

Clare must have been a magician in a former life as her ability to spin plates is quite something. With a husband who works away, 2 kids with a shed load of activities, her taxi and cheerleading skills are on hand most evenings and weekends.

Clare and her family enjoy escaping to Filey, where they enjoy long walks on the beach and eating fish and chips. Clare loves her holiday home as there is absolutely no phone signal.

Henry Bareham

Specification Director

Henry’s takes great pride in his family, a wife to whom he’s absurdly lucky to have been married to for over 30 years. And two children in their 20’s, who now talk to him having managed their way through the teenage years.

Having left his pretend job of 15 years as a fully-fledged P.G.A qualified Golf Professional, Henry has managed his last 20 years + in construction within manufacturing, technical specification, and sub-contracting.

He spends his time away from work trying to re-kindle the talent he had a long time ago on the golf course, whilst also managing a keen interest in the gym, trying to maintain the muscle to body fat ratio in a good way.

Chris Bentley

Regional Manager

Chris’s claim to fame is working with both Tony and Clare for over 24 years, and still being alive to tell the tale. He’s been working for Grayson since day one!

Outside of the office, Chris has a passion for music and plays in a Brass Band. He’s performed at the Albert Hall, and recently performed at Soccer Aid for Unicef in front of 70,000 supporters at Old Trafford.

If he’s not playing music or working, Chris does also like to watch Barnsley FC which unfortunately, doesn’t put a smile on his face too often.

Tony Higson ​

CEO & Managing Director ​

Having two teenage daughters, Tony enjoys spending much of this time working away.

He also has an old wife and new a Doberman, therefore the only time people value him is in the office or on site.

As a Sheffield Wednesday fan, the poor fella doesn’t get any joy there either.

Tony has been the Managing Director of Grayson for nearly twenty-years. For all of this time he was also moonlighting for ACS. Again, holding down two jobs was the perfect excuse for not going home.  

In a previous life Tony used to play solders, however he has very few war stories due to the fact his job was to the fix equipment real soldiers used.

Tony’s biggest fear is retirement.
