Consists of three parts – a backing plate and two jaws which act like alligator jaws to bite into the mortar bed. The tie itself whilst providing lateral support still allows for long term and thermal growth of the brickwork.
The Alligator Ties are designed to keep walls vertical at all times. The “V” shape allows for normal brick growth and expansion, maintaining the control gap. The Alligator Tie can also be used to fix non load bearing walls to ceilings, still retaining that control gap and allowing for movement with the sliding action.
