Wall Strengthening

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems can be used to increase the structural performance of both reinforced concrete and masonry walls. The potential structural uses include the following:

  • In-plane shear strengthening
  • In-plane flexural enhancement*
  • Out-of-Plane flexural enhancement*
  • Shear transfer between wall panels
  • Supplement cut steel/openings
  • Correction of an existing construction and/or design error*

Given the basic project parameters (specifically the detailed performance goal and the existing capacity of the structural element), Fyfe Company engineers will provide a preliminary composite design and cost estimate, at no obligation.

* These applications involve more complex and/or limited designs. Special detailing and project coordination will typically be involved.
