Vista Engineering Ltd has launched its new double drip design for its Type 4 housing tie, the VE4-275.
Previously this would have required a specific offset drip tie which, if installed the wrong way round, would mean the wall still has no drip in the clear cavity.
The new VE4 has been created in such a way so that it can still be installed either way round without diminishing performance and ensuring it cannot be installed incorrectly.
The product is ideal for working situations where there is no drip in the clear cavity, the new Vista VE4 can be used in standard cavities – this means there is no need to dual stock the new VE4s and no need to complicate the product selection.
All VE4 275mm Type 4 housing ties will now be manufactured using the new design.
The new VE4-275 wall tie conforms to PD6697 as a Type 4 tie suitable for party walls at 126 to 150mm cavities.
