Reinforcing Buildings & Structures with Masonry Beams
There are many ways we can create Masonry Beams to reinforce buildings and structures. The Anchoring and Reinforcement systems selected by Protectahome have been identified as representing some of the best systems currently available.
Masonry Repair products used by us are manufactured to the highest standards and installed with great skill and care by our own directly employed technicians.
The structural principles that apply to the Helifix Helibeam system have been meticulously modelled and tested.
Helibeams are created by the installation of HeliBars into HeliBond grout, bonded into pre-cut slots in the masonry. The system is installed to restore structural integrity where masonry has failed or to create load bearing Masonry Beams to reinforce a structure.

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.
