NZS4210, NZS4230 & AS/NZS2699
Tie selection is based on variables including tie type, expected loading (seismic and wind), veneer weight and exposure.
Requirements for different wall tie types are given in AS/NZS2699.1, NZS4210 and the related NZS3604, NZS4229 and NZS4230 present schedules for different veneer types, weights and situations.
These schedules should be read in light of recent changes in the requirements of the loading code AS/NZS1102.
Typically ties should not be spaced at more than 600mm horizontal x 400mm vertical centres. Ties should be long enough to extend at least half way into the veneer.
As a future-oriented, innovative company, Leviat focuses on the ever-changing requirements of the industry, and our latest development combines the portfolio of Ancon and Halfen Tension Systems to ensure we meet the individual requirements of our customers.
We are excited to announce the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued the first appraisal report in New Zealand to Leviat for Halfen HZA Anchor Channels and HZS Channel Bolts.
