A remedial tie system, using specialist 304 or 316 stainless steel ties to stabilise bulging masonry walls by utilising the diaphragm action of internal floors. BowTie utilises a self-tapping action to establish connection to two or three joists whilst the tie is bonded into the masonry wall with Helifix PolyPlus Resin or HeliBond high performance grout. BowTie systems are suitable for end or parallel joist fixing in all masonry types in nearly all types of timber floor construction.

BowTies can be used in conjunction with HeliBars to form part of the HeliBeamâ„¢ System to cost effectively restore or enhance the structural integrity and load bearing capabilities of buildings and structures.
