Provide the necessary restraint to the top of masonry walls while allowing vertical movement.
This is necessary to accommodate shrinkage or expansion of the wall or structural frame, while resisting wind loads.
4 methods of attaching to structure or ceiling are possible:
1. Cast SLIDING CHANNEL “QUICK” (prod No. 8462) horizontally into concrete beam as per illustration. Insert L-Shaped Debonding Tie into Channel and complete brickwork.
2. Using SLIDING CHANNEL “QUICK” (prod. No. 8462) with Sliding Anchor Ties which can accommodate vertical movements. Cast SLIDING CHANNEL “QUICK” into ceiling or concrete beam and insert suitable Sliding Anchor into Channel. Build brick wall around this structure. The Sliding Anchors are designed to accommodate different brick sizes, different design considerations and multiple anchoring of brickwall.
3. DOUBLE-L DEBONDING ANCHOR
Attach to underside of structure with M6 Expansion Bolt and complete brick structure around it.
4. Restrains the top of internal walls by means of 2 angled Ties, which are attached to the top of a structural frame with an 8mm Expansion Bolt.
Each restraint can resist a service load of 1kn.
