Summary Techniques have been developed in recent years for the reinstatement of cavity walls by inserting new wall ties without recourse to demolition and reconstruction; this digest describes the range of techniques and the associated hardware that are available. It deals particularly with cavity walls that either have been damaged or have lost their connection between the leaves as a result of the corrosion of steel wall ties. The methods described are also applicable to a range of related situations where the insertion of ties may be required; for example, tying back new walls to cross walls, repairing subsidence damage, stabilising collar jointed * and faced walls, tying back cladding walls to frame structures and tying back walls that have been cut for openings or movement joints. This digest replaces Digest 257 which is now withdrawn
