Ties, Fixings and Masonry Reinforcement Products
Masonry may deteriorate, crack, delaminate and fail for a variety of reasons. Most problems can be overcome by using various combinations of Helifixs extremely versatile and adaptable remedial ties, fixings and masonry reinforcement products.
Helifix products are made from high tensile Grade 304 (1.4301) or 316 (1.4401) stainless steel to a unique helical design. This creates a slim profile with a large surface area that ensures a secure and lasting connection, with or without grouts or resins, in bricks, blocks, stone, concrete and timber as well as local building materials. It also means all products have great axial strength combined with flexibility which allows natural structural movement and avoids the introduction of any additional stresses.
These simple, yet highly effective, one piece products are quick, easy and economical to install. Their self-tapping properties provide excellent holding power and avoid splitting timber or masonry. Where appropriate, they can be installed through insulation without significantly affecting its thermal properties and provide multiple cross-cavity drip points. Once installed, all products are fully concealed, leaving the building structurally secure but virtually unmarked.
