The Heli-Pin® anchor is a one-piece stainless steel helical wall tie system used for anchoring existing brick veneers to the back-up structural members without exposing hardware. The helical design allows the tie to be driven quickly and easily into a predrilled pilot hole with a Heli-Pin setting tool and a roto-hammer drill (or embedded into mortar joints in new construction) to provide a reliable mechanical connection between a masonry façade and its backup material or between multiple wythes of brick. Existing façades constructed of various masonry materials can be reattached and reinforced using the Heli Pin. They are ideal for stabilizing areas with missing or corroded wall ties as well as retrofits to multiple width masonry wall sections. Heli-Pin anchor performs in concrete and masonry as well as wood and steel studs.
