Helix Super Spiro Crack Stitching

Helix super spiro bars and Helix super grout repair and stabilize cracked masonry. The bars can be used in many applications to include lintel and new build bed joint reinforcing.

Installation

  • Cut out horizontal mortar joint with a disc cutter to a minimum of 500mm either side of the crack to the specified depth
  • Clean out slots and thoroughly flush with water
  • Vertical spacing every 4-6 brick courses 300mm - 450mm 
  • Depth of slot for single cavity wall, 25mm - 35mm. 45mm for a solid wall
  • Inject the super grout using the Helix grout injection gun to the rear of the cut mortar joint
  • Push the bar into the grout creating a strong bond around the bar
  • Insert super grout to fill the slot 10-15mm from the face allowing to repoint mortar bed and make good
  • Repair cracks near corners and openings when cracks are less than 500mm from an external corner or an opening, at least 100mm should be bent around the corner and bonded into the return wall.

Benefits

  • Cost-effective and permanent 
  • Cut to any length on-site 
  • Excellent bonding between the bar and grout

Helix super grout is a non-shrink, pumpable, thixotropic, high performance, cement-based grout suitable for injection with a hand applicator.

Packaging

The packaging of the grout ensures that consistent results are obtained with every mix. There is nothing to leave out and more importantly nothing to add. Contractor error is therefore practically eliminated.

Available in 1.5 litres, 3 litres, and 6 litres with the super grout injection gun.

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.

Logistics

Helix spiro ties are 6mm in width, and in lengths of 300mm, 280mm, 260mm, 240mm, 220mm, 200mm, and 180mm.

Helix spiro fixers are 6mm in width, and in lengths of 160mm, 140mm, 120mm, 100mm, and 70mm.

Benefits

  • Effectively resists tension while accommodating sheer and compression forces
  • Accommodates an adjustable insulation retaining disc
  • Has multiple drip points to prevent moisture transfer across the cavity
  • Allows for variation in joint coursing between leaves.

Installation

  • Load the spiro ties into the drive tool. Place the spiro tie at its desired point of entry and drive it into place with a hammer
  • Install an adjustable insulation retaining clip to secure insulation
  • The spiro ties must be built into the bed joint as the exterior wall courses are laid to meet the embedment specifications
  • Placement and location must be in accordance with project specifications
  • An engineer must specify the precise embedment positioning of the spiro ties

Our spiro timer frame ties should be installed by qualified contractors and installation must be approved by the project engineer.
