Crack Stitching Kit
Ancon Staifix-Thor Helical Crack Stitching Kit
The high strength, non-disruptive solution for the permanent repair of cracked masonry.
This kit contains all the necessary components to permanently repair vertical or stepped cracks in masonry. Experts in the remedial market have designed the kit’s contents, guaranteeing the correct specification of reinforcing bar, grout and installation tools required for this application and the compatibility of all components.
Stainless steel helical bars are chemically bonded into horizontal slots, cut in bed joints, which stitch across the crack. When installed, these bars evenly redistribute tensile forces over the reinforced area to stabilise the structure. On completion, the bars and the grout are concealed, retaining the original character of the wall.
Cracks are repaired with no further damage to the wall, no costly or lengthy re-construction work and no inconvenience to the building’s inhabitants.

From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
