The Pos-I-Tie® system is a single barrel screw that penetrates insulation/gypsum to provide a solid connection with the backup wall for transfer of lateral loads while sealing the exterior hole with an EPDM washer and an optional #610 Thermal-Grip® 2” continuous insulation washer.
The Original Pos-I-Tie® is a two piece system consisting of a barrel screw and a looped triangle wire tie.
The Pos-I-Tie® Barrel Screw will cut through insulation and gypsum board but not through OSB and Plywood. The barrel length will be a combination of the insulation and the gypsum. There is a 1/8” tolerance in the EPDM washer under the barrel head that will seal the hole with 1/2” gypsum and dimple into the insulation for 5/8” gypsum.
