BrickFix Mechanical Remedial Wall Ties

BrickFix mechanical wall ties are designed to replace or supplement existing cavity wall ties. Two types are available depending on whether a neoprene or copper alloy "expander" is preferred:

  • Quickfix Mechanical Wall Tie (Neoprene)
  • Eezietie Mechanical Wall Tie (Copper Alloy)

The Quickfix Mechanical Wall Tie (Neoprene expander) has the advantage of faster application due to its one-piece fixing tool.

BrickFix mechanical wall ties are available in various lengths to accommodate different cavity widths.

The diagram below shows how BrickFix mechanical wall ties are installed into a cavity wall (showing a slight upward slant):

All BrickFix wall ties should be installed in accordance with the advice given in BRE Digest 329 and BRE Digest 401. If you would like to discuss a wall tie replacement project, please contact our technical department.
