Tie Length & Density
Ties should be of the correct length to ensure they are properly embedded in the masonry.
The spacing of veneer ties should be in accordance with building codes or engineers' specifications. There should be a minimum 15mm cover from any exposed surface.
The maximum width is 75mm and the minimum width is 40mm. Any application outside this range will be subject to specific engineering design (SED).
Remedial Wall Ties
Spacing of remedial ties will typically be subject to specific engineering design. NZS4210 provides the principal new build reference for veneer construction.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
