“Timber frame construction is growing in the UK and is very common in Scotland. This addition to our range of wall ties aims to reflect that growing market.”
(PRWEB) April 25, 2010
Tec Ties, the tangle free tie company, is launching a new wall tie for bricklayers and builders of timber frame houses.
Tec Ties is launching the 'timber frame wall tie' for 50, 75 and 100 mm cavities. The new timber frame wall tie is supplied with a stainless steel nail to ease fixing.
Statistics* show that timber frame construction is the fastest growing method of construction in the UK.
According to the UK Timber Frame Association, almost 25% of new houses in the UK in 2008 were built from timber frame construction. In Scotland, timber frame is the most popular form of house construction with around 75% of all new houses being built with a timber frame.
Bob McGrouther, Sales Manager at Tec Ties, said: "Timber frame construction is growing in the UK and is very common in Scotland. This addition to our range of wall ties aims to reflect that growing market."
Based in New Mills, in the beautiful High Peak district of Derbyshire, Tec Ties is particularly well-known for its tangle free wall ties, from its range of construction fixings, which save bricklayers and builders lots of time by helping them to avoid having to untangle bundles of wall ties during bricklaying.
Tec Ties supplies the tangle free wall ties in bundles, rather than boxes, which means less waste on site and lower landfill taxes for builders.
The cavity wall ties suppliers’ best selling wall ties include:
1. TT4 Housing Ties
2. TT2 General Purpose Ties
3. TTDT Double Triangle Ties
4. TTSPE Movement Ties
5. TTID Insulation Discs
6. TTFC Frame Cramps, and
7. TTTF Timber Frame Ties
The company distributes its range of products through builders’ merchants across the whole of the UK.
