Passed NFPA 285 Testing as part of the CavityComplete® Wall system. Click HERE for test data.



  • Snap on design locks the ThermalClip® to the barrel loop creating a thermal break between the wire tie and the Pos-I-Tie® Barrel Screw.


  • ThermalClip® also creates a dissimilar metals break allowing the use of Stainless Steel Ties or Stone Anchors with the Original Pos-I-Tie®.


Proprietary Plastic Material:

  • Decreases thermal transfer. The plastic has very low thermal conductivity; over 100 times less than metals such as steel.


  • Highly flame resistance with a UL 94 V-0 rating


  • Tolerant in “freeze-thaw” conditions


  • Tolerant of alkalines in mortar

Wire Ties

Test Data


The Pos-I-Tie® ThermalClip® was fully tested in 2014 as part of the CavityComplete® Wall System. The test was conducted by Architectural Testing (ATI) and witnessed and listed by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). The CavityComplete® Wall System successfully completed the 30 minute NPFA 285 fire exposure/propagation test and passed, therefore, the Pos-I-Tie® ThermalClip® passes as part of the system. No individual product can pass or fail NFPA 285 testing, only an assembly of products is tested. To suggest the Pos-I-Tie® ThermalClip® does not pass NFPA 285 testing is simply inaccurate.
