Strengthening an Existing Structure
Structural strengthening is required when a load carrying building element is under strength due to changes in applied loading conditions or as a consequence of poor construction or design inadequacy. Strengthening an existing structure requires expert knowledge and strict compliance with application processes to assure structural integrity. REMEDEX are experienced in the installation of structural strengthening systems such as carbon fibre laminates. Carbon fibre laminates are an economical, lightweight and corrosion free method of increasing the load carrying properties of concrete floor slabs, beams and columns. They can be applied to any geometric shape offering flexible and fast installation. Can also preserve load carrying properties when penetrations need to be cut through existing slabs to facilitate post construction changes, eg; new lift shafts, service risers etc.
