The Reinforcer Carbon Fiber Concrete Reinforcement
What Is The Reinforcer® foundation wall stabilization system ?
The Reinforcer® composite system is a Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) made of carbon fibers in an epoxy resin martix specifically designed for strengthening and repair concrete and masonry walls and structures.
How does The Reinforcer® keep basement walls from bowing?
When THE REINFORCER®, concrete reinforcement, is applied to foundation walls, it counteracts further wall bowing from outside pressure on the wall. Taking the tension force (or tensile load) that the basement wall cannot.
For every increase in pressure on the foundation wall, THE REINFORCER® supplies an equal and opposite resistant force making the wall stronger. It helps eliminate expanding, shifting, cracking, and bowing by using carbon fiber to repair the walls.
Benefits of Carbon Fiber Wall Reinforcement
- NO Heavy Equipment
The Reinforcer® is a patented state-of-the-art system developed by professional engineers. A combination of space-age polymers and carbon fibers have been processed into a material that is virtually impossible to stretch. It is a perfect material to use to repair basement foundation walls to resist outside pressure that cause basement foundation cracks and wall bowing.
- NO Messy Concrete
You no longer need invasive measures (such as breaking through concrete floors or making structural changes to floor joists) to stabilize foundation walls. THE REINFORCER® foundation reinforcement is simply applied directly to existing walls. You no longer have to worry about the look of boxy, ugly steel columns, which can intrude into your basement space. This makes basement finsihing much easier by proviing a smooth structure for the interior walls.
- NO Invasive Measures
THE REINFORCER® carbon fiber repair brace has a tensile strength that has proven to be eight to ten times stronger than steel AND works on concrete block or poured concrete to secure and repair cracking, bowing or buckling foundation walls.
