All wire used is either 3.00mm, 3.15 mm or 4.00 mm diameter and these sizes have been used when tested to meet the requirements of AS 3700-2011. A cavity tie is designed to tie together two leaves of masonry that are separated by a clear cavity of any width. Length of ties is determined by adding Cavity Width + plus a minimum embedment of 50mm in each leaf as detailed in AS3700-2011.
Note: At least 50mm must be embedded into the mortar over each brick.
Our type A Medium duty cavity ties have been standards tested for your peace of mind.
