           • Ladder Level design is manufactured with double eyes butt
             welded 16” O.C. to the longitudinal wires ensuring that the
             height of the reinforcing will not exceed half the dimension  Level Hook & Eye (Series 800)
             of the joint (3/8” joint = 3/16” max reinforcement) as
             required  by TMS 402 Code .

           • Level Eye Ladder and Level Adjustable Tab design provide
             optimum CMU core clearance.
           • Level Eye double eyelets are welded 16” on center.
           • “ Lollipop” design of eyelets provides for less than 1/16”
             tolerance and meets the TMS 402 Code.

           • Level Eye ensures continuous 16” O.C. spacing. When
             installed vertically at 16” O.C. horizontal spacing ensures
             code compliance requiring one 3/16” pintle every 1.77 feet of
             wall area.
           • Tabs are welded 16” O.C.  Tabs and wall ties are designed to
             meet the TMS 402 Code.  Tabs and wall ties are
             3/16” diameter wire and are produced on our high-speed,
             multi-slide wire forming machines.

           • Dual tangent points of the eyelets are made by a slight
             indentation in the “U”. Dual tangent points of the tab are
             made by bending the ends of each wire point. The points in
             both systems achieve a deep weld into the side wires on the
             reinforcement for maximum strength and durability.
                                                                   Adjustable Tab (Series 600)
           Installation

           • Lay reinforcing on wall in advance of the mortar.
           • Position side rods allowing a minimum of 5/8” of mortar
             coverage between the reinforcement and the exterior face.
           • When using Ladder Type always keep the cross rods in the
              web of the block to simplify rebar installation.
           • Apply mortar to bed joint. Since wire is round and not flat,
             mortar will surround the reinforcing and no lifting is
             needed.
           • Apply at vertical intervals of not more than 16”.
           • Reinforcing should be lapped 6” to meet code
             requirements.
