  • The Correct Use of Wall Ties and Head Restraints

    Seminar | Ancon Building Products

    This seminar provides an overview of best practice in the selection and installation of common masonry fixings; focusing on cavity wall ties and head restraints. It has been designed to educate the market on key issues raised by the 2017 ‘Report of the Independent Inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools’ which found avoidable construction defects in the masonry panels. A recommendation given by Standing Committee on Structural Safety (SCOSS) in February 2017 was “Designers and constructors must become more aware of the safety critical nature of fixings”. The seminar is designed to address this industry need.
