Where masonry has cracked and failed, from the results of ground movement, weathering or increased loads or stresses, the unique Helical System provides stress-free horizontal bed-joint reinforcement which ties the masonry together while creating deep masonry beams which distribute the structural loads. Other ties and fixings provide lateral and vertical restraint to complete the system, which is applicable to all types of masonry structures.
For many situations the Helical system offers a structurally sound alternative, at significantly less cost than underpinning and other traditional repair methods. Overall disturbance to the ground, building and occupants are considerably reduced and after repointing and making good, the building is left virtually unmarked.
Premier Structural Services are approved installers of the Helical system and can offer Indemnified Design for most projects. We are also pleased to offer advice, make free site visits and propose structural repair programmes.
