Creating masonry beams

Where masonry has cracked and failed as a result of ground movement, component failure, weathering or increased loads and stresses, the innovative and versatile Helibeam System ties the masonry together and creates deep masonry beams within the existing masonry.

The Helibeam System uses long parallel lengths of HeliBar reinforcing bars bonded into predetermined cut slots (normally the mortar beds) with HeliBond grout to form deep masonry beams which distribute the building loads. These can be used to resist vertical loads to prevent building subsidence or the horizontal displacement of a bowing wall next to internal stairwell where BowTies cannot be used as there are no joists at this point.
