Wall Tie Location

Using Specialised Equipment For Non Intrusive Detection

HTA use specialised equipment to non intrusively detect Wall Ties. We carefully remove masonry units to expose the Wall Ties and visually survey the condition and embedment depth plus check for correct installation.

Wall Tie insufficient embedment, incorrect wall tie specification and insufficient quantity of wall ties being installed can result in a reduction of the overall lateral capacity of the wall.

Without remedial action faults can result in serious structural problems including total wall failure which currently is making the news.

  • Non Destructive location of ties using the latest technology

Why use HTA for your Wall Tie Surveys
