Wall ties should be of the correct length to ensure they are properly embedded in the masonry.
Australian standards require a minimum wall tie embedment of 50mm, however Leviat recommends tie lengths which achieve a design embedment of between 62mm and 75mm in each leaf to allow for site tolerance in both cavity width and centring of the ties.
Recommended Tie Lengths for Cavity Ties
|Cavity Width (mm)||Length of Wall Tie|
Recommended Tie Lengths for Veneer Ties
|Cavity width (mm)||Length of wall tie (mm)|
*Due to the limited length of the tie, a water drip would not be provided.
