Carbon Fiber Structural Repair
Weatherseal and Fortress Stabilization Systems have partnered to introduce Carbon Fiber/Kevlar technology in the form of Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Grid straps, the next step in permanent foundation stabilization. The hybrid grid strap system is comprised of high tensile strength carbon fibers woven together by Kevlar strands.
Carbon fiber / kevlar grid straps are designed for stabilizing both poured concrete and block walls. Due to the extreme high strength to weight ratio, carbon fiber reinforcement is the repair material of choice for bowed basement walls, bridge columns, and concrete beams to restore and maintain structural integrity.
Replacing steel with carbon fiber
Carbon fiber is now a proven popular alternative to steel for reinforcing structural substrates in residential and commercial applications. Carbon fiber is highly effective at adding tensile strength to concrete. It is superior to steel since it is stronger, stiffer and non-corrosive. It also can be bonded to the surface of a concrete structure at any time to stop bowing and cracking. This allows limitless applications for new construction, repair, retrofit and seismic upgrades.
Wall Failure Repair and Structural Reinforcement
Weatherseal Construction, Inc. is the local contractor of the FORTRESS STABILIZATION reinforcing products. FORTRESS STABILIZATION has developed various Carbon-fiber and Kevlar grids that include grid straps, peel-ply plates, L-brackets, carbon/Kevlar staples, corner bracing and anchors. Weatherseal Construction, Inc. primarily uses these products to reinforce basement walls that have begun to fail, bow and crack. The material can also be used to restore structural integrity to bridge columns, concrete beams, and to mend cracks in concrete structures so the structural members can continue to perform without being removed and replaced
FORTRESS Carbon-fiber/Kevlar grid straps have been thoroughly tested and proven to be the best solution for exterior reinforcement on the market today.
