Ancon PPS/PPB/PPV/PP21 Movement Tie
Debonding sleeves are used on plain-ended wall ties at vertical movement joints that abut columns. The tie will restrain the masonry against lateral wind loads but the sleeve will allow the masonry to expand or contract.
Debonding sleeves should be installed with a 10mm gap at the end to allow for expansion of the masonry.
Debonded Ties require 100mm embedment. A 120mm long sleeve will provide an allowance for movement and tolerance, and will be suitable for most applications. Other lengths and sizes available to special order.
