Helifix Installer

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.

Facing the Middlesbrough dockyards it is thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the town and a link to its rich industrial heritage. The building known locally as Storrow’s was originally the home of J.W. Storrow & Co. ship chandlers and sail makers. Although not actually a listing building, Storrow’s is included on Middlesbrough’s industrial heritage list. For this reason it was decided that the two story façade of its front and side elevations should be incorporated as the building took on a new life as a sports facility for Middlesbrough 6th Form College.

19 Chapel Walks, Manchester

There were springs here which provided a supply of water, giving rise to the names Fountain Street and Spring Gardens. In 1557 a pipe was laid to carry the water to the market place near the present location of the Old Shambles. This was the principal water supply for the town for over 200 years. There was also a reservoir close to where Norfolk Street is now. It was not until the late 17th century that building development started in the area now designated a conservation area. One of the first substantial buildings was Cross Street Chapel, completed in 1694. It was known as the Dissenters...
