Wall tie failure is a common issue among houses built before the 1980s. Wall ties are It concerns are metal strips built into cavity walls with the aim to holding the masonry together.
Over time, the constant impact of varying weather conditions in addition to general wear and tear can cause the wall ties to corrode, break down and eventually, fail. This is even more common for ties that are not galvanised (rust proof) or ties that are exposed and not unprotected.
As the ties corrode they can force joints in the wall apart, causing horizontal cracking, noticeable bulging and general structural weaknesses in the brickwork of your property.

WHAT ARE HELICAL WALL TIES?
Helical wall ties are work-hardened stainless steel wires that have been cold-rolled into a cruciform shape and then twisted. They are used to anchor the outer wall of a building to its inner structure and are available in different lengths to suit all cavity widths.
HOW DO HELICAL WALL TIES WORK?
The helix-shaped stainless steel tie is driven into a small pilot hole to provide a mechanical connection that grips both the inner and outer layers of a cavity wall structure. As it is driven the tie corkscrews into the bricks, its work-hardened helical fins undercutting the masonry to provide an expansion-free anchorage that will withstand tension and compression loads. The continuous helix provides multiple drip points that prevents the passage of water across the tie.
