Ties for Steelwork
The Briclok fits to a column flange and can be used either across a cavity or back into the inner leaf. It should be positioned with the appropriate notch around the flange and installed at 225mm vertical centres. The tie must not be forced onto the column and should have no less than 10mm engagement.
The Column Tie clamps to the flange of a column. It accommodates a steel thickness from 6mm to 25mm and should be installed at 225mm vertical centres. Manufactured in lengths to suit the application, it can feature a drip for use across the cavity or a plain shank for installation back into the inner leaf. As standard, the clamp-on column tie is supplied right-handed as shown in the isometric product drawing below, but can be manufactured left-handed on request.
Note that a design sheet will be supplied on reciept of order to confirm that the product is suitable for the required application.
Simply hammered onto the flange, this fixing can be utilised either on a column with a tie (HOS-TIE) or on a beam with an internal head restraint (IHR-H). The Hammer-On fixing resists load in one direction only and should be installed on alternate sides of the flange. Ties should be installed at 225mm vertical centres and head restraints at 450mm horizontal centres.
The Ancon IHR is used for restraining the top of internal walls or the top of the inner leaf of a cavity wall. The channel stem is closed at the front to prevent mortar ingress and to ensure that vertical movement can take place between the blockwork and the structure.
Available in seven sizes to suit standard universal column/beam dimensions, this tie fits between the flanges of a column and should be installed at 225mm vertical centres.
Special internal column ties can be designed to suit applications where the masonry does not sit inside the flanges of a column.
