The Power-tie Channel Tie System is designed to restrain masonry panels back to the supporting structure of the building. Channels can have a holed back for face fixing with bolts or have tangs welded onto the back for casting into concrete and are available in 100 – 2700 and 3000 mm lengths or can be cut to specified lengths. The easy turn-and-slide tie can be positioned at any height along the channel.
Channel tie projections allow for a minimum of 62.5 mm embedment into masonry and incorporate a V-drip for use in external cavities.
