Grayson (GB) Ltd are launching an innovative new tie that is an ultra-safe 2-in-1 cavity tie and movement tie. The tie boasts a range of new features to make this the most advanced wall tie on the market.
One of the main safety features is that the rounded edges of the tie are smooth to touch compared to other ties on the market. Another safety feature is the smoother underside to the holes without a cheese-grater effect.
The low profile embedment ends provides a number of additional benefits. Firstly, it allows other products like bed joint reinforcement or mesh to be placed in the cavity at the same time. The main benefit of the flat ends are that the 200mm and 225mm are fully debondable so the cavity tie can be transformed into a movement tie – just add a debonding sleeve onto one end of the tie.
The 2-in-1 benefits of this product have space saving advantages on site because one tie can be used for 2 applications. There is also less product wastage because leftover ties can be transferred to different jobs.
Another great feature of the tie is the embedment markings. There is a line marked at 62.5mm which is the recommended embedment of a tie. This feature was suggested in the Cole report after the Scottish School failures. The embedment markings allow checks to be carried out to ensure the ties are installed correctly, which provides benefit to all.
Our new 2000 Range Tie is a Type 1 Cavity Tie conforming to PD6697. It is Class A1 Fire Rated Stainless Steel which makes it ideal for non-combustible cavity requirements. The advanced contours of the new tie provide advanced moisture dissipation.
The 2000 Range Tie is now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm as standard, without the need to place a special order.
The new tie is now available. To be the first to get the new tie, contact Grayson on 08448 50 40 50.

With the continually increasing importance of fire safe products, we are always working with our strong supplier network to find products that meet current requirements.
We now have a stainless steel weep available to meet current demand in the industry. The December 2018 amendment to Approved Document B: Fire Safety of the building regulations prohibits the use of combustible materials in residential buildings over 18 metres.
Guidance taken from the NHBC Standards Technical Requirement 3 advise that stainless steel is a suitable materials because it is classified as A1 non-combustible, therefore meeting the requirements of the NHBC and the amendment to building regulations.
Weep guard protects drainage holes
The holes in the guard allow ventilation and allow water to exit, but are small enough to prevent rodents and insects entering the cavity.
Made from stainless steel
Meets new building regulation requirements for non-combustible products within cavity walls.
No tools required for installation
Simply push the guard into the drainage holes.
Can be cut down on site
The weep guards are made to a standard size of 6mm, however if the drainage hole is shorter than this then the guard can be easily cut on site.
