Spacing of ties - Walls.

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

The spacing of wall ties built across the cavity of a cavity wall is usually 900 mm horizontally and 450 mm vertically, or 2.47 ties per square metre, and staggered, as illustrated in Fig. 72, for the conventional 50 mm wide cavity, with the spacing reduced to 300 mm around the sides of openings. In Approved Document A to the Building Regulations, the practical guidance for the spacing of ties is given as 900 and 450 mm horizontally and vertically for 50 to 75 mm cavities, 750 and 450 mm horizontally and vertically for cavities from 76 to 100 mm wide and 300mm vertically at unbonded jambs of all openings in cavity walls within 150 mm of openings to all widths of cavities.
