Wall ties for aerated concrete
Intended useThe wall ties are designed to provide fixing of a facing layer from masonry units and insulating layer from a porous material (aerated, foam concrete).
DesignThe wall tie for aerated concrete consists of the following components:
- anchoring element – molded plug from high strength plastics;
- BFRP bar with uniform sand coating.
MarkingBPA 230-6-Gazobeton, where:
BPA – BFRP bar,
230 – wall tie length, mm,
6 – bar diameter, mm,
Gazobeton – installation into aerated concrete.
Recommendations on the choice wall ties length
90 – minimal wall tie anchorage depth in a base material, mm;
T – insulation thickness, mm;
D – width of ventilated gap (if any), mm;
90 – minimal wall tie anchorage depth in facing layer, mm.
To fix a thermal insulating layer in walls with ventilated gap, a plastic restrainer should be used.
