The Thor Helical remedial wall tie system is patented in Australia, China, Europe, UK and the United States. The Patents cover an innovative and unique helical fastener and tooling arrangement. This arrangement offers wall tie installers a faster, safer and more cost effective method of fixing retrofit brick ties into most common building materials.
‘Hammer driven helical fixings have been available since I first designed them more than 30 years ago’ says product inventor W H Ollis. ‘Until recently the ties have been driven with cumbersome and expensive power tool adapters that have a history of reliability and safety issues. The key to the success of the new CD Tie system is the design of a small driving shank on one end of the tie. This shank enables a less expensive and more reliable tool to be used to drive the tie rapidly, reliably and safely.
