Introduction

Coastal buildingsWith the large expanse of Australian coast, expanding industrial areas and the historic use in these areas of galvanised wall ties, we are now seeing a situation where external cavity walls are beginning to separate and crack.

Wall tie failure.

Coastal buildings are prone to rapid corrosion of galvanised wall ties due to continual damp and increse of corrosion due to salt.

As the original galvanised ties corrode, usually in the bed joint in the outer leaf, the stuctural integrity of the wall is reduced. This is often difficult to see and so should be assessed by locating a number of ties and removing bricks or mortar to assess their condition. At the same time an assesment of the integrity of the bricks and mortar should be made to assess the most appropriate method of repair. The Matrix Remedial Ties are Stainless Steel 316, corrosion resistant and allow some wall movement. they are available in a number of sizes to accomodate the building material, cavity width and condition of the wall,

Marine Applications

Matrix Marine Ties are ideal for the construction and maintenance of any marine structure. The construction of the tie using austentic 316 stainless steel and its strength due to its helical structure make it the perfect joining technique in any marine, freshwater environment or industrial application.

Wall Cracking

Often associated with wall tie failure and and as with any solid structure, any movement in the foundations often results in cracks appearing in the masonry walls. This is best stabilised using Crack Stitching Bars.

These bars are helical Stainless Steel 316 which are bonded into the existing wall across the crack lines. This solution will redistribute the forces along the masonry reducing the potential for further cracking.

Matrix Crack Stitching Bars provides builders with a permanent solution to repairing cracked masonry walls. These bars are grouted into existing walls to provide a permanent repair to cracked brickwork.
