Product Watch: Winged Wire Tie Brick Veneer Anchor
The WWTA anchor for residential and commercial brick veneer construction is new from Heckmann Building Products.
The low-cost anchor consists of a solid Zinc Wing, Hotdip Wire Tie, and a screw. The low profile allows the wing to be installed before bricks are laid, complying with OSHA regulations for safety.
The pintle tie allows for an overall 2 1⁄2 inches of vertical adjustment and is slipped into the wing by the bricklayers for placement in the mortar joints.
The system complies with the ACI 530 Masonry code and the International Building Code. Seismic ties are available for seismic zones D, E, and F.
