Brick Tie

October 2018

Simpson Strong-Tie introduces the high-performance BTH brick tie, a first-of-its kind, cost-effective product capable of connecting brick and stone veneers to light-frame construction across spans up to 3", offering contractors and homebuilders an innovative solution to meet ever-increasing spacing requirements.
Masonry veneer, often consisting of full-dimensional brick and stone, is used for exterior cladding, façades, foundation facings and chimneys.
Fabricated from 22-ga. galvanized steel, the BTH brick tie is field-adjustable in 2 places and can be installed with either side facing up, providing strength and versatility across varied jobsite conditions and offering labor-stressed contractors a fast and simple 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 1/2" and connect to the framing with a single 0.131" x 2 1/2" nail; and dual field-bendable zones allow for easy adjustment to airspaces within the 2"–3" range.
