Masonry beams reinforce and stabilise the existing masonry while redistributing the structural loads.
The Helibeam System uses pairs of long HeliBars bonded with HeliBond grout into cut slots to form deep masonry beams from the existing masonry. The composite action of the masonry beams provides great strength combined with structural flexibility, while other ties and fixings provide appropriate lateral and vertical restraint.
Helibeam creation is fast, uncomplicated and can be used to add strength, ductility and resilience to unreinforced masonry. Beams may be created to provide structural support to failed lintels, unstable, weak, vulnerable or weathered masonry, or masonry stressed by building subsidence.
