Cintec Lateral Restraint Anchors
A lack of lateral restraint can lead to evidence of leaning and/or bulging of walls. Traditionally such lateral restraint would have been provided by building structural timbers (e.g floors joists, timber beams etc) into walls and by the construction of internal partition walls bonded into the external walls.
To connect the external walls to the structural timbers in a remedial lateral restraint application, a series of restraints are installed using Cintec LRAs. The type and thickness of substrate, size of timbers, loading and orientation of the structural timbers will play a part in dictating the type of Cintec Anchor and connection that would be used. The installation of remedial lateral restraints is often carried out in conjunction with further Cintec anchoring and consolidation work.
