Masonry Problem

The old farmhouse built in the 1900 was constructed on a sloping site and had been poorly extended in the 1980s. Poor maintenance of the farms drainage systems meant Rainwater running of the fields had been redirected down the lane and caused saturation of the soil layers and subsequently sediment had begun to wash away, thus causing the settlement of the new additions.

Solution

Stabilisation with WEBAC 2061 via our injection methods were adopted as this technique provides very little disruption to the client and can usually be carried out in one day compared to that of traditional methods taking a number of weeks to complete. Injections lances were driven in to the ground at 45° to intersect footings at designated points along 9LM and injection pumps connected to the lances to begin adequate flow of material, whilst carefully monitoring pressures and crack width modifications.

Helifix HeliBar

Helical crack stitching is a high strength, non-disruptive solution for the permanent repair of old cracked masonry. Our stainless steel helical bars are chemically bonded into bed joints to stitch cracks, redistributing tensile forces and stabilising the structure.
