Pipe Braces
The Tilt-Up Pipe Brace is a time tested accessory which has become the standard in tilt-up construction. Its proper relation of strength to weight permits ease of handling while providing a rugged brace which is easily adjusted. The tilt-up brace is attached to the panel before tilting by means of a 3/4" diameter coil bolt threaded into the brace anchor. When the panel is tilted into its final position, the floor brackets is normally bolted to the floor slab with our T-13 Coil Anchor Drill In Expansion Anchor. Good construction practices dictate the use of a cut washer under the head of both bolts. A slotted hole on the floor and wall base plate provides easy attachment and has raised stops to prevent the brace from sliding sideways once the coil bolts have been tightened. Both brackets remain flat at all times as pivoting action is provided in both the floor and wall brackets. After the panel is tilted to the approximate vertical position, the Tilt-Up Brace is used to align and hold the panel until it is permanently anchored by further construction. The floor bracket of pipe brace hardware is attached to a 1-1/2" diameter threaded rod. This galvanized threaded rod has 4-1/2 contour threads to the inch that are fast and non-clogging. A weld spot at the top of the threaded adjusting rod prevents accidental removal. Tilt-Up braces are designed for use only in connection with bracing tilt-up precast concrete construction against wind loads. Due to the problems involved in brick in masonry walls, Mason Supply assumes no responsibility if braces are used to support concrete block, brick or other masonry walls. The telescoping pipe braces can be rough adjusted in increments of 6" by aligning the pin holes in the two pipes. Finer adjustment can be attained by simply rotating the entire pipe assembly clockwise or counterclockwise as required. Ease of rotation is guaranteed by the ball bearing coupler attached to the pipe at the wall bracket.

The B-8 Jumbo Brace is a heavy duty brace that needs no knee bracing or lateral bracing. It is a fixed length brace with

15"-18" of adjustment available for minor field variations. The Jumbo Brace is a full swivel brace that can be rotated about its own axis after it has been attached for accurate plumbing of panels. Due to circumstances beyond Masons Supply's control, maximum brace lengths and styles may vary slightly. It is good construction practice to consider the working length of these pipe braces to be 6" more than their minimum length and 6" less than their maximum length.

Delta Tie

A unique insulated precast concrete panel connector. It allows the precaster to fabricate a highly energy-efficient, insulated precast concrete sandwich wall panel using the insulating foam of his choice. This versatile connector allows the foam insulation to be placed from pabel edge to panel edge, eliminating thermal bridges and costly energy loss. The foam insulation is sandwiched between two concrete wythes, or layers, to form a long-lasting, energy-efficient precast concrete sandwich wall panel. The three wythes are tied together using Delta Ties. Spacing of the Delta Ties varies, baed on the panel's required composite moment capacity. The Delta Tie is produced using an engineered composite matrix. It consists of a geomatrically configured, two-dimensional truss manufactured from continuous wound fiberglass embedded in an alkali resistant resin. The design of the Delta Tie produces a connector of remarkable strength and durability. The non-metallic, non-corrosive design of the Delta Tie eliminates any thermal transfer through the panel, increasing the insulating efficiency of the panel. Advantages include an increased load bearing, stiffer insulated panels, design flexibility, cost reduction, quick and easy installation, and applicable to all brands of foam panel insulation.
