Tying Walls to Joists

Strengthening and bowed wall rectification projects require walls to be connected to roof and floor diaphragms. BowTies are used to secure walls to internal floor or roof joists. 

Easy external installation means minimal inconvenience for the occupants while providing an unobtrusive connection with no external plates. Standard BowTies are used when securing the wall into joist ends and BowTie HDs when mechanically connecting to two or three parallel joists. The BowTie is inserted through a clearance hole in the wall and power-driven into position before being resin bonded into the masonry.
