Restraint Ties & Fixings
Join this CPD session on Restraint Ties and Fixings to enhance your understanding on the options available, best practice, and the correct materials to specify to ensure your projects stand the test of time. We will discuss the different types of restraints for securing masonry and options for fixing back to concrete, SFS, and a range of other internal structures, plus gain insight into the different systems for restraining stone and all the relevant standards. We will also be sharing the results of new, independent research, which confirms the correct specification and installation of brick tie channel systems from Sandberg - the world's most respected construction material consultancy with over 160 years' experience in testing the quality and performance of materials.

By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- What the purpose of a wall tie is.
- What the different types of wall ties are and where they can be used.

Masonry Support.
This CPD will provide the ability for delegates to learn directly from our expert engineers about Masonry Support, its importance and why specifying high quality masonry support early in a project is as important as laying solid foundations, to ensure buildings meet safety regulations and last the test of time.

Masonry Support is a common feature found in masonry clad buildings worldwide. Masonry Support has the critical function of taking the external masonry load and applying it back to the structure of the supporting building.

Masonry Support is required to allow for differential movement between the masonry panels and structure around the building and is normally located at horizontal movement joints, window heads, soffits or large openings. Support is usually installed at every, or every other floor depending on the cavity size, structure type, structure size, and load.

By the end of this seminar delegates should understand:
1. What is masonry support and why is it required?
2. The design considerations.
3. How to specify the right system.
4. Good practice in Masonry Support.
5. Associated products, working as a system.
