Wall Repair

Cracking is a common issue that occurs with poured foundations.

Concrete walls will crack due to the release of water during the curing process (known as shrinkage) or because of settlement. Cracks are commonly found near breaks in walls (such as windows and beam pockets) or in the middle of long walls uninterrupted by turns in the wall.

These cracks often leak and surface repairs with rigid products such as hydraulic cement or epoxy will often fail within a couple of years. Proper crack repair requires that the cracks be fully filled with either epoxy resin or urethane foam.

Fortress Stabilization Systems

Fortress Stabilization Systems' hybrid-grid system is comprised of high-tensile strength carbon fiber and Kevlar. The fibers are encapsulated in thermal-set resin and cured in tension. A peel-ply fabric is adhered to the strap, that when removed leaves a prepared bonding surface for adhesive to a prepared substrate.

Advantages:

  • Consistent material properties
  • High bond strength
  • Prepared peel-ply bonding surface
  • Pre-mixed toughened epoxy
  • Able to conform to bowed surfaces
  • Ease of installation
  • Tensile strength is a function of width of strap
