Block Shear™ Connectors allows cavity walls to behave uniformly, resisting vertical shear by “connecting” the exterior masonry veneer to the concrete block backing. The entire wall functions like a truss, with both wythes performing uniformly as tension and compression components of the truss. This enables structures to withstand more load with thinner walls, less reinforcement material, and less material costs.
Our landmark design creation, and the simplicity of design, along with the efficiency of eliminating pressure on cavity wall systems is unique in the industry. Our patented Shear™ Connectors not only excel when installed, but simplify the installation process altogether.
