SB06 – Resilient Stud Wall Tie

The SB06 are used for double stud walls. They are ideally suited for both multi residential timber framed construction and steel stud systems. The ties are used to acoustically isolate and structurally connect the two wall leaves together using Poron 4701 cellular urethane foam.

STRUCTURAL PERFORMANCE

Matrix Industries SB06 wall ties comply with Australian Standard 2699:1:2000 “Wall Ties”. They are capable of transferring structural lateral forces from one leaf to the other. They are classified as a medium duty cavity tie with a minimum characteristic strength of 400 Newtons (N) in tension and 480 N in compression. SB06 ties can accept 10mm differential movement between the inner and outer leaves in both the transverse and vertical directions without loss of strength.

NOISE REDUCTION

SB06 resilient wall ties were assessed in field tests comparing identical isolated and non-isolated rooms within the same building. The acoustic consultant’s report stated, “The vibration isolation incorporated into the building is working satisfactorily, reducing vibration and structure borne noise within the rooms. The measured difference between non-isolated [46dB(A)] and the isolated rooms [37dB(A)] is 9db(A).”

DISCONTINUOUS CONSTRUCTION

Where a wall in a building is required to have an impact sound insulation rating under the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA), such as between a bathroom, sanitary compartment, laundry or kitchen and a habitable room (other than a kitchen) in an adjoining building or unit, then for an acceptable stud wall system, the ties are to be Matrix Industries SB06 resilient wall ties and the wall is deemed to be of discontinuous construction.

FASTENING REQUIREMENTS

Matrix recommends No. 12 Type 17 screw or equivalent.
