In 2008 MLC Enterprises observed waste and inefficiencies in the utilization of the brick ties used to support brick veneer walls.
The company’s CEO specifically noted a large number of brick ties discarded to the ground during the application process and the resulting waste from unused ties. He reasoned this waste occurs when brick masons take a handful of ties, apply what they need to the wood frame, and drop the remaining unused ties to the ground. He also observed that the design of the ties cost the brick masons additional time in securing the ties to the frame.
Based upon these observations, he invented three ties that reduce application time, increase efficiency, and reduce waste.
Why does the patented RFW Anchor brand flat anchor make sense?
“The strength of a resource lies in the effectiveness of its use.”
The patented Flat Anchor connects the internal and external walls constructed of bricks or cement blocks together as one unit.
The use of RFW Anchors reduces construction time by at least half of the industry average, increasing productivity and reducing the waste of time and materials.
Reduced waste leads to reduced cost and increased realized savings for outlay building costs.
Anchors are attached to the flat or roll, eliminating excess brick ties on the site’s ground during and after installation.
Increases inspection passage percentages with fewer marginal errors.
Introducing RFW Anchors brand as the first Flat Anchor available in the market today.
Pre-drilled holes spaced 25 inches apart provide easy application when nailing the Flat Anchor to the wall.
Perforated anchor lifting
The metal surface features perforated edges to pull the anchor from the strip for precisely measured brick placement.
The design and accuracy of the Flat Anchor reduces installation times and eliminates human error due to inaccurate placement calculations.
Development of the Flat Anchor incorporates industry requirements, providing accurate spacing and exact installation based on code specifications.
Width: 1/16 inches Height: 10 feet Length: 7-8 inches
Manufactured to provide sustainable durability and adjustment depending on the wall height for the application.

Patented Flat Anchor
8-inch strip of galvanized metal with perforated edges to remove perpendicular to the strip. The Flat Anchor provides precisely measured placement for brick layers, designed with pre-drilled holes for precision and ease in nailing anchors into wood.
How many do you need?
It takes roughly 140 traditional brick ties to build a 2,000 sqft house. Since our anchors have 6 brick ties incorporated, it only takes 20 anchors (1 box) to build a 2000 sqft house.
