Ancon has developed a wall tie to fix traditional brick cladding to an internal leaf of cellular clay blocks with horizontal bed joints of just 1mm

The Ancon CCB3 is a two-part wall tie, suitable for use in new-build houses and commercial developments. The flat inner section is built into the thin bed joints in the cellular clay blockwork. The cavity width is catered for by the length of the outer wire section, which is hooked into the inner section as work on the external leaf progresses.

This two-step installation process eliminates any risk of injury to site workers from wall ties protruding from the inner leaf.

The wall tie complies with BS EN 845-1: 2003.
