Cracked masonry walls are a common, inevitable problem in older buildings. Crack stitching kits help you to permanently reinforce cracked walls, without having to knock them down and rebuild them. Wall stitching involves installing crack stitching bars, which are grouted across cracks, to add strength and stability.
Crack stitching can’t cure the cause of cracks, only stabilise the system. If a crack is ‘active’ or caused by an underlying structural problem, you should call an engineer.
Crack Stitching Kit contains the necessary components for the effective and reliable stitching of cracked masonry. Bonding HeliBar stainless steel bars into appropriate bed joints or cut slot stabilises the masonry and redistributes tensile loads to minimise further development of the crack.
