Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced the BTH brick tie, a product capable of connecting brick and stone veneers to light-frame construction across spans up to 3-inches, offering contractors a solution to meet spacing requirements.

Masonry veneer, often consisting of full-dimensional brick and stone, is used for exterior cladding, facades, foundation facings and chimneys.

Fabricated from 22-gauge galvanized steel, the BTH brick tie is field-adjustable in two places and can be installed with either side facing up, providing versatility across varied jobsite conditions and offering contractors a solution. Additional BTH brick tie features and benefits include:

  • Embossments for added strength when connecting wood framing and veneer across wider airspaces
  • Tie ends embed in the mortar a minimum of 1-½-inches and connect to the framing with a single 0.131- by 2½-inch nail
  • Dual field-bendable zones allow for adjustment to airspaces within the 2 – 3-inches range
