FERO Thermal Tie™ – Slotted Side Mounted Rap-Tie® Masonry Connector
FERO Thermal Tie™ – Slotted Side Mounted Rap-Tie® (Rod Adjustable Plate) Masonry Connector affixes masonry veneer walls directly to a structural backing stud without any intervening materials (like sheathing). This tie provides a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement. The single slot in the tie each allows up to 1.2 inches of vertical play, and this ensures vertical flexibility for a joint in relationship to the structural backing. The vertical functionality of FERO Thermal Tie™ – Slotted Side Mounted Rap-Tie® (Rod Adjustable Plate) Masonry Connector enables it to resist tensile and compressive lateral loads, and its ability to unify the entire wall assembly to work as one singular component. This may reduce the need for reinforcement, additional wall thickness or materials. The slot sits along the far end of the Plate, and the FERO V-Tie™ is inserted, providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement.
