Cavity wall ties in Orrell are also referred to as brick ties. They are placed within the cavity walls of buildings. They help join two leave in a cavity wall. This enables two different parts to work together as a single unit. Cavity wall ties are always out of sight after a building construction project is completed. The wall ties play a crucial role in stabilizing the building. When a wall tie is poorly installed or insufficient, many structural issues may occur such as masonry cracks, damp penetration and even collapsing of the outer masonry. Wall ties are made from fire resistant and corrosion free materials. They have a special drip formation that prevents water from traversing into the inner leaf. In the UK, a majority of wall ties were used in construction projects during the 1920s and 1930s. It’s only natural that these have become ineffective over time.
