Material
Manufactured from 2.5mm (WT4) and 3.3mm (WT2) austenitic stainless steel wire to BS 1554: 1990 minimum 18/8 composition for proven corrosion resistance. Quality control on the ties includes checks on the incoming steel for chemical composition, dimensional tolerances and mechanical properties. During manufacture, regular visual and dimensional checks are made.

Application
The stainless steel wire wall ties can be easily built into brickwork or blockwork during construction. Catnic stainless steel wire wall ties are smooth, without sharp edges and are designed to resist the collection of mortar droppings. WT4 and WT2 cavity wall ties should be installed at a density of 2.47 ties per square metre (450mm vertical and 900mm horizontal spacing) in domestic houses and small commercial buildings. Wall ties may be positioned centrally or offset in the cavity provided that they are embedded a minimum of 50mm in both leaves.
