Here are just a few examples of the structural repair work we can undertake using Helifix products.
Lengths of helical HeliBar extending 500mm either side of the crack are bonded into cut slots (normally the mortar beds) with HeliBond grout for a reliable and permanent crack stitching solution.
Predetermined slots on the internal wall are channelled out to the specified length right into the corner. Angled holes of 10mm are drilled from the corner into the external wall. Single lengths of HeliBar are bent to shape with the angled end being PolyPlus-resin bonded into the hole. The remainder is HeliBond grouted into the internal wall.
When repairing or creating flat arch lintels, the traditional solution is to cut out the brickwork, mechanically support the masonry above, and install a new lintel. This traditional method is disruptive, time consuming, expensive, and aesthetically undesirable.
The Helifix method involves using parallel lengths of HeliBar. The HeliBars are bonded into the specified cut slots above the opening or lintel to form masonry beams and create lintels using the existing brickwork.
Twin HeliBars are bonded into predetermined cut slots around the bay, above and below the window, with the ends embedded in the front elevation. BowTies are driven into the joist ends via clearance holes in the masonry and low-level cracks are stitched with single HeliBars.
When masonry has cracked and failed as a result of ground movement, component failure, weathering, or increased loads and stresses, the Helibeam System can tie the masonry together and create deep masonry beams within the existing masonry.
The Helibeam System uses long parallel lengths of HeliBar reinforcing bars bonded into predetermined cut slots (normally the mortar beds) with HeliBond grout to form deep masonry beams which distribute the building loads.
BowTie HDs are inserted through clearance holes in the masonry and are power-driven through the first and second joist (and third, if required) before the outer end is bonded into the masonry with PolyPlus resin.Replacing cavity wall ties using this method are:
Dryfix Wall Ties, Which Are Power Driven Directly Into Both Leaves, via a Small Pilot Hole of Around 6mm DiameterRetroties, Which Are Driven Into a 4.5mm Pilot Hole in the Far Leaf, via a Clearance Hole in the Near Leaf Into Which They Are Bonded With Polyplus ResinResities, Which Are Resin Bonded Into a 10mm Hole in Both Leaves
