The Timber Frame Wall Ties, intricately designed to accommodate all types of timber frame structures, present an effective and practical solution for affixing brickwork or blockwork to the timber frame. Applicable in structures reaching up to a maximum of 4 storeys and 15m in height, these ties are developed with a keen focus on durability, reliability, and compliance with industry standards.
Compliance & Testing:
The wall ties are compliant with the highest industry norms. They have been fully tested as per BS EN 846-6:2012, meeting the requirements of BS EN 845-1:2013 as a Type 6 tie. The ties also align with the technical requirements of the National House Building Council (NHBC), providing you with the assurance of quality and safety.
Our Timber Frame Wall Ties are recommended for installation at a density of 4.4 ties per square metre in buildings where the basic wind speed does not surpass 25m/s. In scenarios with more extreme wind conditions, it’s advised to increase this density to 7.0 ties per square metre, thereby ensuring the stability and safety of the structure.
To further attest to their quality, all our cavity wall ties have undergone independent testing at Lucideon, notified body number 1289, thus confirming their compliance with BS EN 845-1:2013.
The results from the testing on 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm cavity Timber Frame Wall Ties underscore their robustness and capacity to withstand stress, providing optimal performance for your construction projects.
The ACS Timber Frame Wall Ties incorporate a distinct cranked design that facilitates ease of installation and hinders moisture from traversing the cavity. These ties, available in standard lengths for cavity widths of 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm, are suitable for a wide range of timber-framed projects.
Ideal for securing masonry outer cladding to softwood structural frameworks in residential and industrial/commercial buildings, these ties are not intended to connect masonry to different materials or for use in multi-story structures exceeding four stories.
