Brick ties provide a connection between the wood structure and brick façade.
The new, high-performance BTH brick tie is a tested solution for connecting masonry veneer to wood structures with airspaces of 2" to 3", providing the flexibility needed to meet the veneer spacing requirements. The new design adds strength and versatility, making this tie the ideal solution for varied jobsite conditions. It’s field adjustable in two places and can be installed with either side facing up.
Use existing Simpson Strong-Tie brick ties, BTB and BT, for 1" prescriptive code airspace requirement, or at a closer spacing for airspaces from 1"–2".
