The new Safety Plain End Formed Tie is strong, durable, easier to handle and uses less packaging.

We are pleased to announce the release of our 200mm Safety Plain End Formed Wall Tie (SPF-200), specifically designed for use over movement joints. This tie complements the existing Safety Plain End Tie (SPE) range.

A movement joint, also known as an expansion joint or control joint, is a flexible gap in a building material such as concrete or masonry that allows for expansion and contraction. The Vista SPF-200 wall tie is perfect for use over movement joints in a run of brickwork or blockwork where a safety embedment detail is required.

It’s made from stainless steel grade 1.4301, which makes it non-combustible in accordance with national building regulations and offers excellent durability with a service life of at least 60 years.

The SPF-200 wall tie has undergone thorough testing to ensure compliance with industry standards. The tie has been tested in shear to BS EN 846-7:2012, demonstrating a shear load capacity of 2230N, which ensures strength and security for construction projects.

Some of the key features of the new tie are its lightweight design and reduced packaging, making it easy to handle on-site, transport, and save storage space.  It works in conjunction with debonding sleeves that allow for movement of the tie within the sleeve, facilitating the horizontal expansion and contraction of the structure.

Phil Travis, Group Managing Director stated, “At the Vista Group, we’re constantly striving to enhance our product offerings whether it be product performance, handling or packaging. Our engineers have designed the new SPF-200 to maintains its performance while being lighter and easier to lift, making it more convenient for our merchant partners and those on site. “

The Vista SPF wall tie is now available through Vista’s distribution partners and can be specified on NBS Source. For more information or to request a FREE SAMPLE, call 01663 736 700 or contact sales@vistaeng.co.uk.
