The Thermal 2-Seal™ Wing Nut Anchor is an innovative single screw veneer tie for metal stud construction, it features a dual-diameter barrel with factory-installed EPDM washers toseal both the face of the insulation and the air/vapor barrier,and unique Thermal Wings that aredesigned to decrease thermal transfer through rigid insulation.
The Thermal Concrete 2-Seal™ Wing Nut is an innovative single screw veneer tie for concrete, CMU, or wood stud construction. The anchor features a dual-diameter barrel with factory-installed EPDM washers to seal both the face of the insulation and the air/vapor barrier, and unique Thermal Wings that are designed to decrease thermal transfer through rigid insulation.
The projecting Thermal Wings:
Are made from steel encapsulated in plastic to create a thermal break, the plastic is highly flame resistant
Accept a 2X-HOOK™ or Seismic 2X-HOOK™ and spin to easily orient pintles/hooks parallel to masonry joints
Up to 1/2” of inward adjustability to account for variations in wall thickness

Made with a 5/16” hex head, install with a standard hex socket
The compressed leg 2X-HOOK™ has been tested and designed to withstand over 200-lbf, in tension or compression, at maximum allowed offset (ACI 530 184.108.40.206.5.4) of 1-1/4” (disengagement of the pintle from the veneer anchor). These results exceed BIA recommendations and the capabilities of standard “round wire” hooks or pintles by over 100%!
NOTE:2X-HOOK™ CAN BE INSTALLED WITH LEGS POINTINGUP OR DOWN.
The embedded portion of the 2X-Hook is 3/16”DIA round wire, satisfying the code requirement that the mortar bed thickness (typically 3/8”) must be twice the diameter of the wire.
2X-Hook: U.S. Pat. No. 8,613,175Test results available upon request.
