DryFix Terracotta Tie

For securing loose or fractured terracotta and delicate facings

The Terracotta Tie secures fragile terracotta facings and delicate decorations and features which have become loose or are suffering from stress fractures.

Installation

1. Drill a small pilot hole through the terracotta and into the backup material using a rotary percussion drill (3-jaw-chuck- type).

2. Load the tie into the insertion tool fitted to an electric hammer drill (SDS type).

3. The tie is power driven into position (with SDS hammer drill) until the outer end of the tie is automatically recessed below the face of the terracotta. Make good the entry hole with matching materials. In thin walled terracotta, the tie may need to be left flush with the surface.

Applications

  • Developed specifically to secure fragile terracotta facings and delicate decorations and features which have become loose or are suffering from stress fractures.
  • It has an 8mm diameter over the majority of its length with a short 10mm section at one end to grip the soft terra cotta without enlarging the pilot hole.
  • It is installed in the same manner as standard DryFix ties to provide a rapid, reliable and concealed solution.

Features

  • Does not stress or fracture fragile substrates
  • Requires only a small diameter pilot hole
  • Requires no resin, grout or mechanical expansion
  • Withstands cyclic loading
  • Accommodates differential movement

Benefits

  • Quick, easy, non-disruptive installation using the
    Power Driver Attachment
  • Highly economical with low installed costs
  • Leaves masonry virtually unmarked
  • Usable in all weathers and temperatures
