The Thor Helical wall tie tester has been developed to carry-out tensile pull out tests on our range of wall ties and fixings. A deflection needle facilitates the measuring of load deflection movements. A selection of keys are available to fit the appropriate helical tie, which range from 5mm to 12mm in diameter.
Wall Tie Tester
The Thor Helical wall tie tester is designed for use by wall tie installers, or their supervisors, to carry out on-site pull out tests. The test unit comprises a 3.5kN (800 lbf) tension tester and an adapter key for testing helical wall ties
The tester has an integral bridging unit that houses a mechanical pulling arrangement. It incorporates an hydraulic load cell that measures the tension forces being applied to the test sample.
The wall tie tester is used for quality control during installation of a remedial tie system. It can also be used by specifying professionals to determine the suitability of a specific product for a wall tie installation scheme. A deflection gauge can be used in combination with the tie tester to measure deflection at given loads. A selection of test keys are available for use with this unit
Wall tie tester units are sold in boxes of 4. Each tester is packed in a carrying bag containing the pull-out tester, a ‘tommy-bar’ and a pull test key of your choice.
