CRACKTIE  
     
 

APPLICATIONS

The following problems can result in cracking of walls. Having addressed the foundation problem, then the CRACKTIE can be used to reinforce the damaged wall.

  • Consolidation of underlying sub-soil
  • Frost heave
  • Structural failure of foundations
  • Mining subsidence
  • Swelling of sensitive clay sub-soil
 

CRACKTIE

Attension is drawn in the case of cavity walls to the need for transverse wall ties to be introduced where the outer reinforced leaf is required to support the inner loaded leaf of the wall. In many cases, it will be necessary to utilise the REDIFIX Truss System of wall tie to ensure adequate load transfer. If both leafs are reinforced, then only normal cavity ties such as the MACTIE will be required.
