Helifix launches new literature, featuring the latest innovative sustainable structural solutions

Helifix, Inc. is a technically led organization with an on-going product development program, specializing in solutions for masonry repair and structural stabilization.

The new 8 page brochure is a concise ‘Products and Applications Overview’ that summarizes the company’s innovative repair strategies, typical applications and full range of engineered helical systems. It also guides the reader through the various technical support services on offer to property owners, engineers, surveyors and contractors which range from preliminary site visits to insurance-backed installation.

Repair and refurbishment is increasingly acknowledged as the more sustainable alternative to demolition, in terms of architectural value, materials usage, cost and environmental impact. Helifix products are an effective cure for common structural defects in most construction materials including masonry, wood, concrete and stucco. Illustrated within the new literature are informative examples of how Helifix’s engineering expertise avoids dismantling and costly rebuilds.

Brian Barnes, Helifix Vice-President of Sales, says,
“Our unique helical bar is extremely versatile and can be used to overcome a wide range of structural faults. We restore integrity to virtually every type of structure from houses and tower blocks, to masonry bridges and historic buildings. In our portfolio, there is almost certain to be a repair technique to provide a long term solution to any structural problem.

DryFix, a dry mechanical pinning and remedial tying system that requires no resin, grout or mechanical expansion, is probably our best known product. Sales of DryFix continue to increase as its benefits become more widely recognized.

Helifix-branded products, combined with their concealed non-disruptive installation techniques, are recognized worldwide. While Helifix, Inc. has been established in North America for over 15 years, the business was actually formed 30 years ago in the UK where it developed the original one-piece stainless steel helical tie that has since become an accepted Industry standard”.

The new literature is available on request or can be downloaded here. A comprehensive collection of standard repair details and product datasheets are also available.
