BTH brick tie from Simpson Strong-Tie

Simpson Strong-Tie

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced the industry’s first brick tie that the company says is capable of costeffectively connecting veneers to lightframe construction across 3″ airspaces. Fabricated from 22-gauge galvanized steel, the BTH brick tie is fieldadjustable in two places and is designed to be installed with either side facing up, which is said to provide strength and versatility across varied jobsite conditions. Includes embossments for added strength when connecting wood framing and veneer across wider airspaces. Tie ends are embedded in the mortar a minimum of 1-1/2″ and connecting to the framing with a single 0.131″ x 2-1/2″ nail. Dual field-bendable zones allow for adjustment to airspaces within the 2″ to 3″ range. www.strongtie.com/bth
