Carbon Fiber Stabilization Products For Bowed Walls

Foundation Repairs

We are certified to use Fortress Stabilization Systems to repair bowed walls which are as strong as steel.

The best way to permanently repair bowed foundation walls and repair structural cracks. The hybrid grid strap system is comprised of high tensile strength carbon fibers woven together by Kevlar strands. Carbon Fiber / Kevlar Grid Straps are designed for stabilizing both poured concrete and block walls. Due to the extreme high strength to weight ratio, carbon fiber reinforcement is the repair material of choice for bowed basement walls, bridge columns, and concrete beams to restore and maintain structural integrity. Carbon fiber is a proven alternative to steel for reinforcing structural substrates in residential and commercial applications. Carbon fiber is highly effective at adding tensile strength to concrete.

We are trained and certified in the installation of Carbon Fiber / Kevlar technology. It is superior to steel since it is stronger, lighter weight and non-corrosive. It also can be bonded to the surface of a concrete structure at any time to stop bowing and cracking. This allows limitless applications for new construction and repairs.

In addition to Carbon Fiber Straps, our Kevlar Neckties provide a secure anchorage system to further stabilize a foundation that has moved inwards as a result of top wall movement. Kevlar Neckties may be used in conjunction with Carbon Fiber Straps or Carbon Fiber Staples to further enhance the structural reinforcement of a foundation wall.

Carbon Fiber Straps – Lifetime Warranty: Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Grid Strap installations completed by certified installers( we are certified) are backed by the Fortress Stabilization System’s lifetime warranty.

Detailed Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Strap Information

Soil pressure can fracture a block or concrete foundation wall, causing horizontal and vertical cracks and/or bowing. The foundation must be stabilized to assure that a homeowner retains the full value of his or her home. A fractured basement wall is serious trouble and a major hamper on the value and sale of the home.

The Carbon Fiber grid halts any further movement of a block or concrete wall. It will do it easily, safely and without any outside excavation. The grid lies flat against the wall and when painted over, are hardly noticeable. The wall will never bow or crack again.

Carbon fiber grid straps have an extremely low profile that virtually makes them invisible, while other systems like steel bracing can protrude 6” – 12” from the wall. Unlike steel bracing, carbon fiber does not rust! Carbon fiber straps can be covered over with paints or other coatings to further enhance the looks of the finished repair.
