VUETRADE have an updated range of Brick Ties to suit the classification requirements in the AS/NZS 2699.1 (2000) standards for masonry fixings. As per requirement from AS/NZS 2699.1:2000, all wall ties are required to be tested and classified in terms of durability classification of R0, R1, R2, R3, R4 and R5. These durability classifications relate to the type of coating material and its coating mass that is required in the manufacturing of wall ties as per AS/NZS2699.1:2000.  For more information see our Brick Ties Specification Guide webpage.

Timber Connector Specification Icons and Area Usage Chart

To assist with proper product specification and to ensure the correct grade steel is used for the local area or environment; VUETRADE have unique and easy to understand icons for our Timber Connectors range.

We also have a coordinating chart which gives a visual guide as to which products should be used in proximity to different environmental factors.

The suitability of brick ties in different environmental conditions can be determined by reading off the specification area chart based on the type of environment and the distance where the brick ties will be used.  It is important to use the recommended brick tie classification to reduce the risk of brick tie corrosion that may affect the overall structure integrity.
