Simpson Strong-Tie introduces the BTH brick tie capable of connecting brick and stone veneers to light-frame construction across spans up to 3 in. Meeting the need for wider airspaces between a veneer and wood framing, the brick tie is field-adjustable in two places, and its dual field-bendable zones allow for adjustments to airspaces within the 2- to 3-in. range. It is fabricated from 22-gauge galvanized steel and can be installed with either side facing up. Tie ends embed in mortar at a minimum of 1 1/2 in. and connect to the framing with a single 0.131-x2 ½-in. nail.
