Wall ties have been used in masonry structures for over 100 years. Most cavity wall ties installed prior to the 1980s were made of non stainless steel construction. Cavity ties fail due to corrosion from condensation or air borne salts carried in coastal air. As ties corrode they expand and can cause spectacular failure of the wall.
Shire can survey, design and install remedial cavity wall ties solutions. All works are carried out by direct-employed engineers and technicians. We are able to offer full insurance backed warranties for completed works. We carry out works for Housing stock owners, Building Societies, Architects, Engineers, Estate Agents and home owners.
