    *Check with insulation manufacturer for exact spacing requirements.

The Original Pos-I-Tie® is a two piece system for attaching Brick and Stone Veneer to various existing backups. It incorporates a barrel-screw piece which allows easy installation using an ordinary drill with a special chuck adapter.

 

For backups with insulation or gypsum board, the screw penetrates the insulation, screws into the backup, and then prevents moisture penetration by sealing the hole in the insulation with a EPDM washer.

 

The barrel makes a positive contact with the backup wall transferring all compression and tension loads to the backup wall and not to the insulation/gypsum board.

 

The screws are a part of the system; therefore, no inferior screws can be substituted. The barrel is manufactured of ZAMAC 2 - a 92% zinc alloy. The screws are heat treated and Stalgard® coated for maximum corrosion resistance.

 

Wire ties are available in Hotdip Galvanized After Fabrication or Stainless Steel.

CONCRETE/CMU SCREW

USED FOR:

  • Concrete
  • CMU
  • ICF
  • Wood
  • Brick

Screw Types

The Original POS-I-TIE® is a very versatile system featuring interchangeable factory assembled screws for various back up walls.

SELF DRILLING SCREW

USED FOR:

  • Steel Stud
  • Extra long screws available for special applications

STRUCTURAL STEEL SCREW

USED FOR:

  • Up to 1/2" Thick Structural Steel

Barrel Lengths

Nine barrel lengths for various sheathing thickness:

  • 5/8"
  • 1"
  • 1-1/2"
  • 2"
  • 2-1/2"
  • 3"
  • 3-1/2"
  • 4"
  • 4-1/2"

Once the barrel-screw is in place, the wire tie is installed into the barrel. The loop in the tie allows approximately 1-1/4" of vertical adjustment above and 1-1/4" below the barrel for placement in the brick veneer mortar joint.

 

Wire Ties

There are 4 types of Brick Veneer wire ties, the Triangle Tie, Seismic Triangle Wire Tie, Single Pintle Wire Tie, and the Double Pintle Wire Tie for the Pos-I-Tie® Thermal Clip. Standard Tie lengths are 3", 3-1/2", 4", and 5". They are available in 3/16 diameter Mill Galvanized Steel, Stainless Steel, and Hotdip Galvanized After Fabrication.

 

All wire ties can be modified with a 16 gage Seismic Hook tab for holding masonry reinforcement or pencil rod. These are factory welded to the Pos-I-Tie® Wire Ties and meet Seismic Zone requirements.

Installation

Chuck Adapter

Sleeve Tool

The Chuck Adapter is a special tool for the Pos-I-Tie® designed for proper installation. The Chuck Adapter will fit any standard power drill.

 

Note:

  • Do not use a hammer drill to install the Pos-I-Tie®. Only use a standard power drill.

Sleeve tool features an integrated drill bit while allowing attachment of the Pos-I-Tie® Chuck Adapter. When installing the Pos-I-Tie® into a concrete, CMU, wood, brick or ICF, it may be necessary to pre-drill a pilot hole. The Sleeve Tool will allow you to switch easily between drill bit and chuck adapter.

Test Data

NOTICE - DON’T BE FOOLED BY FALSE CLAIMS:

The Pos-I-Tie® System utilizes a single washer at the exterior insulation. This system has been fully tested by The Thompson & Lichtner Company, Inc. proving no air or moisture penetration. This system has been in the marketplace for 20 years without failure. There is no need for an inner washer at the Dens-glass.
