Crack Stitching Kit
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.
Teplo-BFR is an innovative basalt-fibre wall tie that features a plain end for resin anchoring into an existing structure and a moulded safety end for building into a new bed joint.
