The Pos-I-Tie® ThermalClip® is designed for use with the Original Pos-I-Tie® Veneer Anchoring System. This new breakthrough in masonry construction adds thermal-break technology to all the advantages of the Original Pos-I-Tie® Veneer Anchoring System. It has passed NFPA 285 Testing as part of the CavityComplete® Wall system.
A. Pos-I-Tie® Screws
1) Self-Drilling Screw:
Use a standard drill with a variable clutch adjustment and a Pos-I-Tie® Chuck Adapter. Place the barrel end of the screw in the chuck adapter; drill through the gypsum board and into the metal stud.
2) Concrete/CMU Screw ICF:
Use a standard hammer drill and a Pos-I-Tie® Sleeve Tool with a Pos-I-Tie® Chuck Adapter on the end. Set Drill to Hammer, slide off the chuck adapter sleeve and drill a 2" deep hole into the backup with a 3/16" (4.76 mm) masonry drill bit. Replace the sleeve/chuck adapter, switch the hammer mode off, and place the barrel end of the screw in the chuck adapter. Drill the screw into the hole.
3) Dril-It® Screw:
Use a standard drill with a variable clutch adjustment and a Pos-I-Tie® Chuck Adapter. Place the barrel end of the screw in the chuck adapter and drill the screw into the structural member. Some structural steel may require pre-drilling a pilot hole.
From the underside of the barrel loop, insert the tab of the thermal clip into the barrel loop and fold until you hear the distinct “snap” of the engagement.
C. Wire Ties
Configure ties to prevent flow of water to anchor and to transfer lateral loads without excess mechanical play or deformation.
