The Turbo Flex system of thin joint wall tie installation offers the advantages of a no-expanding mechanical fixing on the far leaf and a mortar fixing on the near leaf. Proof testing of the far leaf using a Target Load Test Unit can be performed randomly as installation proceeds. Because the fixing method employed does not induce additional stresses into the substrate Turbo Flex can be used in many and varied materials, from poured concrete columns to aircrete blocks, with satisfactory results and, because they are stress free the edge distance spacings are negated.
The design of the Turbo Flex remedial tie ensures that any potential for installer error can be minimised. The multiple drip design of each fin allows the Turbo Flex to be installed at an angle of up to 25° towards the inner leaf without the possibility of any water transfer across the cavity. It is recommended that each Turbo Flex is installed horizontally.
