    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for wall ties for masonry and masonry-veneer walls of TypeA and TypeB, including cavity, veneer and remedial.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the requirements for wall ties for use in tying together (a) the leaves of cavity masonry walls;(b) masonry veneer walls and load-bearing frames; and(c) masonry veneer walls against a strong backing wall.NOTES:1 AS/NZS 2699.2 specifies the durability performance and test procedures for structural performance of connectors and accessories used in masonry construction.2 AS/NZS 2699.3 specifies the requirements for durability of lintels and shelf angles.3 This Standard gives categories of wall ties, and classifies wall ties by characteristic strength and durability and, where applicable, characteristic stiffness.4 The durability classifications employed in this Standard are compatible with the environments specified in AS/NZS 2312, NZS 3604 and AS 3700.5 Design and installation of wall ties are specified in AS 3700, NZS 4210 and NZS 4230.This Standard applies to ties used in masonry described in AS 3700, NZS 4210 and NZS 4230, including those used in thin-jointed masonry (for example, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blockwork).
