Masonry tie/anchor between concrete wall and stone facade

aryll | Posted in Green Building Techniques on

I am looking for a masonry tie that limits thermal bridging between concrete wall and natural stone or brick facade. The planned wall assembly looks like 6-8 inch structural concrete, 7 inch rockwool insulation, 3/4 inch air gap, 4-6 inch natural or engineered stone facade.
There a wall ties from German manufacturers that reduce thermal bridging. The product is accord to the German DIN Norm and has CE certification that is valid in the EU and Scandinavia.
Are there US product that I am not aware of or is there an inexpensive way to get the foreign products approved by an inspector.
Any advice is highly appreciated.
