Tie Length

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
50-75 200
76-100 225
101-125 250
126-150 275


Recommended Tie Lengths for Veneer Ties

Cavity width (mm) Length of wall tie (mm)
20-44* 100
45-69 125
70-94 150
95-119 175
120-144 200
145-169 225

*Due to the limited length of the tie, a water drip would not be provided.
