WHY CHOOSE HIGH QUALITY BRICK TIE CHANNEL SYSTEMS?
Read independent research from Sandberg
They looked into some key questions about choosing high quality brick tie channel systems (such as this ACS Framefix Ultra Channel system) over cheaper auxiliary alternatives.
For a building to stand the test of time it needs solid foundations. But, when it comes to investing in brick tie channel systems, that simple principle can be lost in the battle for cheap prices.
Restraint channel fixings restrain the masonry against significant wind loads, which put the products under significant design stress. Yet too many contractors mix and match channel, wall ties and fixings, reducing the design life and increasing the risk of failure.
Read Sandburg’s findings, along with our in-house Strategic Specification Director, Paul Ruding’s views on how this new research can positively impact your buying decisions.
33% less fixings than alternatives, saving on upfront costs and installation times.
QUALITY OF BUILD
Compression sleeves must be used to ensure fixings are installed straight, eliminating bending that can cause costly issues further down the line. They also reduce the risk of insulation crushing, another potential failure point.
HIGH STRENGTH CHANNEL
Our fully tested, stainless steel channels have an added ‘dimpling’ profile, which provides added shear strength, increased load carrying capacity and reduced thermal transfer.
RELIABLE COMPRESSION SLEEVES
Compression sleeves made from composite material for a significant reduction in heat loss compared to a stainless steel sleeve.
Fixings and compression sleeves work together to avoid corrosion.
