Wall ties required for a porch?

Evening all

First post so I'll start by saying hello to everyone!!

I have a question on wall ties, I am due to start building my porch at the weekend, it is only going to be 2mx1m but I am unsure whether to butt the brickwork up to the existing wall or add ties.
Screwfix seem to have a fairly decent cheap solution and for what it costs I am swaying towards these.
Has anyone used a similar device and is it worth my while using them?

Thanks in advance
