Adding Strength & Ductility

Improving the ability of buildings and building elements to deform without collapsing is an important part of seismic strengthening programmes.

HeliBar bonded with HeliBond grout into slots cut into masonry can help improve ductility by holding the masonry together and distributing stresses over larger areas.

HeliBar installation is fast and uncomplicated, and requires minimal disruption and architectural alteration. HeliBars are manufactured from stainless steel for high corrosion resistance, and may be bent and manipulated on site to provide additional anchorage where required and to follow contours and corners. The Hi-fin helical profile ensures excellent mechanical bonding with HeliBond cementitious grout over short distances.
