Fiberglass Loop Ties
ready to install
no special hardware
ideal for board form
no rust and no patching
Fiberglass loop ties are just like they sound, a loop tie that made non corrosive, high strength fiberglass. Install them exactly the same as a regular loop ties.
Heavy Duty -3000LB safe working load
•Eliminates need for cones
•Low thermal conductivity (for insulating applications)
Epoxy coated fiber thread, tinted grey to match concrete color for cosmetic applications
Maximum Safe Working Load:
3000 lbs (based on a 2:1 safe-working-load)
•Architectural/exposed concrete walls
•Water treatment facilities
•Insulated concrete walls
•Applications where steel or rust is a concern
•The Fiberglass tie lends itself perfectly to any application where conventional steel loop ties are discouraged or prohibited, as well as places where stainless ties or deep breakbacks are required. They can also be used alongside conventional steel ties to address a critical section of a wall.
Fiberglass Ties should be installed like their steel counterparts. Set up formwork and fasten ties in place with wedge bolts
•After stripping panels break the thimbles off with a hammer or use an angle grinder or multi-tool. NO PATCHING REQUIRED
•For exposed walls where appearance is critical, use a shim stock backing around the tie to protect the finished wall from the grinder.
Using fiberglass for board formed concrete
Board formed concrete is an increasingly popular look when pouring an exposed wall. It’s achieved by forming with rough sawn or dimensional lumber which leaves the grain and knotty features of the wood as impressions in the concrete. Its an outstanding natural looking wall.
Fiberglass ties are ideal for board form work — they blend in perfectly with the textured wall and will never rust, which means NO STAINING. Fiberglass ties are ground flush with the wall which means NO PATCHING. Patching a board formed wall is less than ideal, it’s nearly impossible to blend a patch with the natural texture of wood grain.
If you own or rent steel ply panels, pouring a board form wall with fiberglass ties is incredibly easy. See below for a step by step guide.
This example is features board form on one side of the wall. If both sides are
