AMA Couplers, Tubes & Accessories

AMA HEAVY DUTY TIE SYSTEM

The AMA Tie System is of two types – Recoverable Tie System and Irrecoverable Tie System. The Recoverable Tie System is protected by a plastic sleeve with plastic cones at each end that prevent the tie rods from making contact with the concrete.


TIE ROD

Generally stocked and supplied in 6m lengths and diameter of 15mm in its true colour (plating/galvanising damage the rod) with coarse thread to enable spontaneous cleaning and rapid action..


WATER STOPPER

In situations where a tie is to be connected up to a waterstop in the middle of a wall when constructing watertight concrete walls a tie rod connector is used. This connector is a barrier against water seepage by way of a central disc.


WING NUT

The nuts are designed with wings to ensure easy handling and are used for all soldier


TIE CONE

These plastic cones serve to prevent the cohesion of the sleeve tubes to the plywood.


WASHER PLATE / THRUST PLATE

TIE SLEEVE

PVC Tubes are slipped over the central area of the tie rod to enable easy recovery of the tie rod after the concrete sets.
