Subject: Tying of veneer to timber structure
There is several types of veneer ties available in Australia and the US should not be different
in that respect. One type has nails working in tension, the other in shear.
The latter type is nailed from inside, to the studs, after bricklaying is done.
The first type, where either nails or screws are in tension due to lateral forces
should be avoided. They are meant to be attached by two fasteners.
A bricklayer or a stone mason, when left to themselves, will only use one,
to save work, unless someone is inspecting on continuous basis.
This makes them rather useles.
There is, of course, another type, often employed in retrofit:
A stainless steel threaded rod, screwed from outside, thru brick and into timber.
It can also be used for connecting the leaves in double brick construction.
