Cintec America Offers Anchor System - Versatile Method of Structural Reinforcement
Cintec North America, a manufacturer of structural solutions for historic masonry walls, offers the Cintec Anchor System, a versatile method of structural reinforcement tailored to the specific strengthening and repair requirements of individual projects. Ideal for use in historical buildings, masonry bridges, monument repair, high rise buildings, retaining walls, and harbor walls, the Cintec Anchor System stabilizes and strengthens non-reinforced masonry structures without the need for external and internal steel bracing.
The Cintec Anchor System is a versatile solution that is both sympathetic with existing structures and undisruptive of existing architectural design. Easily used in poor quality materials and in bridging cavities, the Anchor System delivers fast, permanent repairs, even in weak substrates.
The Anchor System is comprised of a steel section in a mesh fabric sleeve, into which a specially developed cementitious grout is injected under low pressure. The flexible woven polyester sleeve restrains the flow and molds the anchor into the shapes and spaces within the wall, providing a strong mechanical bond. Variations in the size and shape of the System's individual components enable the basic method to be extended to meet the unique requirements of each project.
