Helical Bar Reinforced Repairs
Quadriga is an approved installer of Helifix, the world-renowned helical bar reinforcement system for structural repairs.
Where masonry has cracked and failed as a result of ground movement, weathering or increased loads and stresses, the Helifix repair system can often provide the ideal solution. Helifix reinforcement products can be used to provide a range of solutions to structural problems, including:
- Stitching masonry or brickwork cracks
- Stabilising bowed walls into joist sides
- Replacing cavity wall ties
- Reconnecting external and internal walls
- Repairing brick arch lintels and bay windows
How does the Helifix system work?
The products in the Helifix Reinforcement System work by tying the unstable masonry together. Their unique helix shape provides the appropriate level of lateral and vertical restraint, to reintroduce structural integrity to the building.
Helical reinforcements can be installed laterally along walls and bonded into the mortar, or perpendicularly drilled deep into the wall to tie the elements together. Meanwhile Helifix offers micro piles to counteract problems caused by foundation settlement, which require minimal excavation and disruption compared to other foundation repair solutions.
Helifix systems allow the building to be structurally repaired, yet remain virtually unmarked. Its visual impact is so subtle that Helifix has been used to repair historic and listed buildings, including 19th century railway bridges, warehouse conversions and country mansions. Furthermore, in most circumstances the building occupants can remain within the building while the work is in progress, making it an ideal solution for commercial and residential buildings.
