BS 5268-6.1 Type 6 Tie
The Teplo-L-Tie is ideal where a low thermal conductivity restraint fixing is required between a masonry outer leaf and an in-situ timber frame. The body is manufactured from basalt fibres set in a resin matrix and features a stainless steel upstand at one end with a 7mm diameter fixing hole. When fixing to timber, Ancon recommends a 5mm x 30mm countersunk wood screw.
This tie is suitable for cavities from 100mm to 300mm, features a moveable o-ring drip to prevent water crossing the cavity and can be used with the black Teplo-Clip where insulation is to be retained.

Ancon Timber Frame Movement Tie

Where standard Type 6 Timber Frame Ties are unsuitable, Ancon recommends the use of the Timber Frame Movement Tie.
Manufactured to suit any cavity from 50mm to 150mm, the Ancon Timber Frame Movement Tie comprises a channel, a strip tie and a screw. This system accommodates maximum differential movement of 65mm; the tie should be positioned 10 12mm from the bottom of the channel.
Staifix Frame Tie
The Staifix Frame Tie is used to join timber door and window frames directly to brickwork. It is suitable for use in buildings up to 15 metres in height. The vertical spacing of frame ties depends on the application. Please contact Ancon for more details.
Following recent fire tests at BRE Global, Ancon is pleased to confirm that its innovative basalt-fibre, low thermal conductivity wall ties, Teplo-BF and Teplo-L, offer 120 minute fire resistance, making them suitable for buildings of any height.
After a string of Awards successes for the Teplo range, the new Teplo-BF low thermal conductivity wall tie has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Innovation in Insulation” category of the 2016 Build It Awards.
