Insofast lateral restraints are used to tie the external walls of a building to internal timber joists or studs to secure bulging walls and prevent further movement or buckling of the masonry facade.

Each stainless steel tie has an integral wood drill shaped on its leading end for forming a pilot hole into softwood. The tie simply screws into consecutive floor joists or studs. The tie is secured to the masonry façade using a resin injection system.

Lateral Restraint ties are installed from outside the property with minimal disturbance. There is no need to move furniture, lift floors, and remove wall plaster or to fit straps.

Simply raise a small number of floorboards to determine the position of joists and services. Power-driven ties connect 2-3 joists to the masonry via a 14mm hole in the outside wall. Installation is quick, easy and discrete.
