Helifix Systems for Structural Reinforcement of Brickwork and Masonry
The Helibeam System uses HI-Fin profile, helical stainless steel HeliBars, manufactured by Helifix Ltd. The bars are bonded into the masonry and provide a cost-effective means of restoring structural integrity to stone, brick or cob built structures where the masonry has lost it's load bearing capabilities as a result of ground movement, weathering or increased loads and stresses. The system also provides solutions for new build and remedial upgrades to meet seismic requirements where this is required.
We use the Rotafix Resiwood Systems to achieve Low Disturbance Structural Restoration of Timbers.
The method involves cutting out rotten timber and replacing this with reinforced resin. The systems may also be used to increase the strength of existing overloaded structural timbers.Repairs may be carried out to:

We also provide the installation of Cathodic Protection of Steel Reinforcement for the protection of reinforced concrete structures.The system is equally applicable to protection of iron balcony railings and other traditional iron detailing. The Galvashield range uses sacrifical zinc anodes to provide galvanic protection to the steel, significantly extending the life expectancy of a structure subject to corrosion. We use these products in conjunction with the appropriate Fosroc Repair Mortars.

Many operations that are carried out by conventional access methods can also be implemented by Rope Access or Abseil Access.The work will generally take longer but the cost saving through not having to provide scaffold or other access platforms will often off-set this. Link to the Abseil Photo Page for examples of projects carried out by Rope Access or Abseil Access.
Abseil Access Surveys
We will carry out photographic, video, or visual surveys as required. In addition, we can provide the facility for Assisted Surveys where you will access the structure yourself with full safety precautions in place for your security.
