CTP Stitch Tie

Re-anchors existing veneers to back-up structures

CTP Stitch Tie is a stainless steel pin that reattaches existing masonry façades to back-up structures. These retrofit ties can stabilize veneers of brick, stone, masonry, or precast concrete that have missing or corroded wall ties. The process eliminates the need to tear down and replace existing facades, and preserves the beauty and historical integrity of existing buildings.

OVERVIEW

The CTP Stitch Tie is a stainless steel pinning solution for re-anchoring existing veneers to the back-up structure. The process eliminates the need to tear down and replace existing facades, and preserve the beauty and historical integrity of existing buildings. When CTP Stitch Tie pins are driven in pre-drilled "pilot" holes, the spiral-shaped tie threads itself into the building material. The helical shape provides a flexible in-plane connection between wythes, while maintaining a threaded connection to resist out-of-plane loading for both tension and compression resistance. The CTP Stitch Tie does not draw walls together – therefore tension forces between wythes are not present. They are installed in relatively small holes that are easily patched and concealed. Various diameters and lengths are available for numerous applications.
