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.
Shelf angle systems provides flexible, cost-effective design solutions for the support of masonry cladding and are designed to suit specific applications, taking into account loading, fixings position and cavity width.
