ORANGE F. MERWIN, OF ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA.

WALL-TIE.

Application filed March 11, 1911.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 28, 1913.

Serial No. 613,816.

To czZZ whom it may concern Be it known that 1, ORANGE F. MnnwIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Erie, in the county of Erie and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in VVall-Ties, of which the following is a. specification.

This invention relates to wall ties and consists in certain improvements in the construction thereof as will be hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims.

Wall ties of this type are used to bind different courses of brick, or courses of brick with. the frame of a building in what is commonly known as a veneered building.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings as follows:

Figure 1 shows a plan view of one of the ties adapted for binding two courses of brick. Fig. 2 shows a plan View of a tie adapted to be used in a veneered building. Fig. 3 shows a side elevation of the tie shown in Fig. 1.

The tie is formed of a sheet metal strap. The part of the strap adjacent to the end is provided with corrugations or ribs, these ribs are of herring bone shape or relation converging toward the end. Vhere the tie is used for binding two courses of brick, these corrugations are arranged at each end, and in each instance the corrugations converge toward the nearest end. Where the tie is to be used for a veneered building, only one end is corrugated. By this arrangement of corrugations or ribs, the binding material,

such as cement or mortar, is subjected to a strain which tends to crowd it toward the center. This arrangement is less liable to crumble the mortar with an over strain than where the corrugations are otherwise arranged. At the same time, by giving these corrugations a herringbone shape as indicated, the tendency of the metal to flatten out with an undue strain is very largely obviated. The ribs on the different sides brace the metal in a given cross section as to this, and not only this, the direction of strain is more nearly in line with the corrugations than would be the ease with the corrugations directly across.

What I claim as new is:

1. As an article of manufacture, a wall tie formed of a sheet metal strap and having corrugations of herringbone shape converging toward the adjacent end, said tie having its opposite end adapted to be secured to a wall.

2. As an article of manufacture, wall tie formed of a sheet. metal strap and having corrugations 0t herringbone shape at each end, the corrugations at each end converging toward the adjacent end.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing wltnesses.
