What are Fixings and Wall ties?

When we marvel at the towering structures around our cities, we often overlook the intricate systems that hold them together. Among these fixings are fixings and wall ties, the bones that hold the masonry support together.

Fixings and wall ties play a pivotal role in providing structural support, These components are responsible for securing various elements of a building together such as ensuring that the structure remains strong and resistant to external forces such as wind, seismic activity, and the weight of the building itself.

While fixings and wall ties may seem like small components compared to the massive walls they support, their significance cannot be underestimated. Proper installation is essential to ensure that these elements function effectively throughout the lifespan of the building. Any installation errors can compromise the structural integrity of the building, which could lead to catastrophic consequences.
