Side Mounting Rap Tie

The side mounting rap tie transfers tensile and compressive lateral loads acting on the masonry veneer through the V-Tie to the Plate, which is fastened directly to the side surface of the structural backing.

The Side Mounting Rap-Tie system has been engineered to eliminate many issues problematic for a multi-component tie:

  • Holes in plate provide positive restraint between tie components to prevent disengagement
  • Reduced mechanical free play
  • Limited deformation under load
  • Side mounting places the fastener connecting the tie and structural backing in shear rather than direct tension to:
