FASTIE

 
The FASTIE provides an excellent fixing to brick and stone masonry, with low stresses transmitted to the base material by PVC expanders during setting of the tie.The Fastie has been used in materials with a compressive strength of only 5N/mm2.This versatile remedial wall tie also works well in concrete and dense strong blockwork.
The Fastie is manufactured from A2, 300 series, austenitic stainless steel with PVC expansion elements to both inner and outer leaves of the cavity wall. Both expanders are independently set using a pre-set torque wrench and special setting tools.The tie is supplied and can be installed fully assembled for quick and easy application.The inner leaf connection can be tested prior to setting the outer leaf expander.
The Fastie complies with BRE digest 329/401, CIRIA 117 and DD 140 for remedial wall ties systems.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

 

APPLICATION METHOD

SPECIFICATIONS:
Material A2, 300 series, Austenitic Stainless Steel Expanders 12mm diameter PVC to BS2848
The PVC is impervious to mould growth, drying or shrinking and resists chemical attack. Thread diameter of Rod M6
ACCESSORIES:
FTM6S Threaded Setting Tool
FT5HS Hex Setting Tool TBIOO Fixed Head Torque Wrench
TORQUE SETTING:
6.8Nm (5lb.ft)
NOTE:
Drill bits to conform to DIN 8035

 
DRILL
Drill 12mm diameter hole in brickwork within 10 upwards, setting depth gauge on drilling machine to give between 55-65mm hole depth in inner leaf.
SET INNER
Blow out hole, screw threaded setting tool (FTM6S) on to M6 thread on tie and insert the tie to full depth of hole in inner leaf.Tighten inner expander with pre-set torque wrench (TB I 00). Remove setting tool.
SET OUTER
Fit hex setting tool (FT5HS) on to torque wrench (TB 100) and set outer expander by tightening nut until pre-set torque is reached. Seal outer brick with colour matching mortar.
