What are Corrosion Zones?

Any construction within a coastal area should incorporate corrosion resistant stainless steel ties and products. Abey has created a corrosion zone table to assist in working out which stainless steel product to purchase. This can be found in our Masonry/Brickies Guide.

What needs to be considered when ordering a brick tie?
  1. Brick veneer is rated as light or medium duty
  2. Second storey construction ties must be screw fixed
  3. The minimum rating or cavity construction is medium duty
  4. If your building project is in a coastal area or within one kilometre of an industrial area, make sure you only use 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel
  5. Control joints and openings – the vertical spacing are halved
  6. In veneer construction, masonry must be anchored to stud walls, framed at regular spacings and include gable ends.
