165 Adjustable Truss Seismiclip® Interlock System

pdf

165-2X S.I.S. is a truss style adjustable joint reinforcement for seismic conditions featuring winged loops and the NEW 2X-HOOK™ combined with the Seismiclip® Interlock System.

The compressed leg 2X-HOOK™ has been tested and designed to withstand over 200-lbf, in tension or compression, at maximum allowed offset (ACI 530 6.2.2.5.5.4) of 1-1/4” (disengagement of the pintle from the veneer anchor). These results exceed BIA recommendations and the capabilities of standard “round wire” hooks or pintles by over 100%!

  • NOTE: 2X-HOOK™ CAN BE INSTALLED WITH LEGS POINTING UP OR DOWN.
  • The embedded portion of the 2X-Hook is 3/16”DIA round wire, satisfying the code requirement that the mortar bed thickness (typically 3/8”) must be twice the diameter of the wire.
  • 2X-Hook: U.S. Pat. No. 8,613,175 Test results available upon request.

The 165 S.I.S. with the Seismiclip® Interlock System reinforces the outer wythe while retaining all the advantages of an adjustable reinforcement system. The system also allows in-plane vertical and horizontal movement while restraining in and out movement.

  • Enhanced Performance:
    • The use of a continuous wire in masonry veneer walls is beneficial in providing additional protection against problems arising from thermal expansion and contraction
    • It also allows for a more uniform distribution of lateral forces
  • Seismic Zone Conformance:
    • This system conforms to the requirements of the Uniform Building Code for seismic zones
    • The code requires anchored veneer walls to have a continuous wire embedded in the mortar joint
    • The wire is secured to the tie anchor, which is fastened to the supporting structure
  • Fabricated in conformance with ASCE/ACI 530 building code requirements for masonry structures and ASTM A 951
