Helix Super Spiro Timber Frame Ties
Our new construction drive ties are built to tie walls to new constructions, these permanent ties are easily installed, helping anchor masonry to wooden studs and concrete bricks quickly. These ties are manufactured from type 304 austenitic stainless steel, providing excellent corrosion resistance. The ties are easily hammered into timber or block, where they tap into a threaded channel to produce a hold that's strong and permanent. The ties fit through insulation, causing no loss of thermal properties. Each tie is installed with the use of the manual Helix drive tool.
Helix spiro ties are 6mm in width, and in lengths of 300mm, 280mm, 260mm, 240mm, 220mm, 200mm, and 180mm.
