Helix Spiro Drive Ties (timber)

Timber Frame Construction 

TYING WALLS TO NEW CONSTRUCTION

 Easy To Install. Strong. Permanent

No other system anchors masonry to concrete block, concrete backup or wood studs as quickly, economically and securely as Spiro-Ties. Manufactured from Type 304 austen.itic stainless steel to provide excellent corrosion resistance, Helix Spiro-Ties are easily hammer-driven into the substrate, where they tap a threaded channel to produce a hold that is strong and permanent.

Helix Spiro-Ties come in various lengths and two standard diameters of 5mm and 7.5mm with a metal thickness of 2mm. They are ideal for use in residential, institutional or commercial buildings featuring exterior masonry cladding.

The high-performance Spiro-Ties system fits through insulation with no loss of thermal properties.

A custom-crafted tool ensures that when installed correctly, each Spiro-Tie can be driven to its specified embedment in poured concrete or unit masonry as well as into wood stud backup.
