Hi Guys,

So, today we have blog post number two for you.  This blog is focused on head restraints, a key masonry product.


Etag supply MT HR1 head restraints – See here at etag.ie or fixfactory.ie.

Head restraints allow for vertical movement of blocks which can then accommodate shrinkage or thermal movement of the structural frame or wall of a buildings structure.  Etag head restraints provide the required restraint to the top of any wall.  It is specially designed to give a positive fixing to the head of a wall, without having any visual impact on the finished single skin wall.


The Metfix concealed internal head restraint (otherwise known as MT HR1), is concealed within wall construction.  It is a two part tie which provides a positive fixing into the bed joint.

That is all for now, until next time.

Happy building & thanks for reading.
