Ask a question

185 Truss Reinforcement with interlocking heavy-duty Grip-Lok Plate in the brick wythe, the plate accepts a Continuous Joint Reinforcing Wire.


  • Loops welded shut to maintain allowable tolerance and system integrity
  • Allows in-plane vertical and horizontal movement of masonry wythes while restraining tension and compression
  • Grip-Lok Plate T-Head configured to allow simple engagement into Loop-Lok, yet disengagement is prevented
  • Heavy-duty Grip-Lok Plate accepts 9 gauge or 3/16” continuous horizontal joint reinforcing wire


  • 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.
  • Reinforcing for interior wythe can be STANDARD WEIGHT (S) 9 ga x 9 ga, EXTRA HEAVY (EH) 3/16" Side Rods x 9 ga Cross Rods, or SUPER HEAVY DUTY (SHD) all 3/16"
