What Are The Signs Of Wall Tie Failure?

What are the signs of wall tie failure?

  • Cracked brickwork (typically horizontal, or stepped)
  • Bulging brickwork
  • Rust-stained walls
  • Structural problems on similarly facing elevations of neighbouring buildings of similar age / building type.

What is the solution?

Installation of remedial wall ties, followed by the removal or isolation of the existing wall ties, is the quickest and most cost-effective solution to wall tie replacement. There are various remedial wall ties available, but the three most common are:

  • Mechanical Expansion
  • Resin / Grouted
  • Helical
