Footings and Walls, Nov 14

We are moving to finish our pilaster project – should be completed by the end of tomorrow.

Question of the day:

What function does a snap tie serve?

Any questions for me?

It’s an easy one!

    We use the snap ties to provide the thickness of the wall. Plastic Cones are designed to act as internal form spreaders only, they are not intended to support loads and that part of the snap tie which is out of the wall holds the walers in a right order.

    They are a very easy way at making sure you have an uniform wall. They also serve as a fastening for the waillers.

    The function of a snap tie is to keep the form at the exact width required, it solidifies the form and the concrete and helps hold up your inside wall and its also what the braces hook on to to make your form plumb.
