AS 2699.1:2020 Built-in components for masonry construction Part 1: Wall ties.
AS 2699.1 specifies requirements for wall ties for use in tying together —
(a) the leaves of cavity masonry walls;
(b) masonry veneer walls and loadbearing frames; and
(c) masonry veneer walls against a strong backing wall.
This Standard applies to wall ties used in masonry described in AS 3700, AS 4773.1, and
AS 4773.2, including those used in thin-jointed masonry [for example, autoclaved aerated concrete
(AAC) blockwork].
NOTE 1 Type B wall ties are not used in this Standard. For Type B wall ties, refer to AS/NZS 2699.1:2000, which provides definitions, embedment, movement and tolerance requirements, marking, and methods of testing.
NOTE 2 AS 2699.2 specifies the durability performance and test procedures for structural performance of connectors and accessories used in masonry construction.
NOTE 3 AS 2699.3 specifies the requirements for durability of lintels and shelf angles.
NOTE 4 This Standard gives categories of wall ties, and classifies wall ties by mean strength and durability.
NOTE 5 The durability classifications employed in this Standard are compatible with the environments specified in ISO 9223, AS 43 12—2008, AS 3700, AS 4773.1 and AS 4773.2.
NOTE 6 Design and installation of wall ties are specified in AS 3700 and AS 4773.1 (design) and AS 4773.2 (construction).
