Additionally, the system can be used to create a Masonry Beam to distribute loads prior to an alternation, such as when a new opening is to be formed.
Protectahome are also skilled in the installation of long Cintec socked anchors within structures. These bespoke Anchors act similarly to Masonry Beams in distributing loads and restoring structural integrity. Long Anchors require precision drilling and great skill to install.
In the image here, Cintec Anchors 9.5 metres long are being installed in a 13th Century Chapel. The Anchors are installed in holes drilled using a special rig fitted with a 65mm diameter Diamond tipped core. The core bit is then attached to mining barrel.
Precision sequential drilling is required, the drill passes through the centre of the wall, right to left in the photo. Inside the Chapel there are monuments built into and against the walls in the lobby. An elaborate organ backs onto the wall within the Chapel itself.
To ensure that the holes are clear and there is no damage to the monuments or the organ, our team inspect the freshly drilled holes with a micro CCTV camera and record their findings. This also enables the team to identify if there are any significant voids within the path of the Anchor.
