Ideal for bowed and cracked concrete cinder block walls including Stair-Step cracks. Carbon fiber Installed every 4ft along the foundation wall will prevent re-cracking and stabilize your block concrete wall. The 12-inch wide unidirectional fiber will provide the greatest support for these types of walls. Cinder concrete block was popular for many years but insufficient in many homes as a foundation. Over the years in areas that have expansive soils and frost, these walls tend to break at the mortar joints. Wider straps provide and account for this weaker concrete construction.

This is an easy-to-use Carbon Fiber Foundation repair kit designed to reinforce up to 40 ft of the Block wall. When strapped and bonded every 4 ft. A 12-inch wide strap provides more bonding surface area than our competitors. The higher surface area allows the carbon fiber wall straps to hold a more lateral load of the foundation wall. The Professional Carbon Fiber Block Wall Repair Kit offers the most dependable permanent repair solution for cracked bowing poured concrete or block foundation walls.

If you have a cracked or slightly bowed wall, you need to make use of the advantages and effectiveness of Carbon Fiber Straps.

If you have a cracked or slightly bowed wall, you need to make use of the advantages and usefulness of Carbon Fiber Straps.

Unidirectional Carbon Fiber Design

Most carbon fiber foundation repair kit manufacturers make use of a bidirectional fiber system, wherein the carbon fibers are woven into a pattern. Although this creates a visually appealing design, it is more flexible and under load. The woven fibers allow for too much movement as they bend. As tensile force is applied to carbon fiber, the bent fibers try to straighten out, which reduces their strength and effectiveness. For a Bowed foundation wall, you want the repair to be as stiff as possible stabilizing movement.

For these reasons, no other foundation wall reinforcement in the construction industry comes even close in strength, stability, and durability. This makes it the best choice for repairing foundation walls and basement walls.

 

 

1. Measure the wall for placement of the wall straps to avoid exceeding 4ft spacing and placing straps on both sides of any windows.

Example placement of strapping with obsticles in the way

2. Prepare the wall using a hand grinder with a diamond cup wheel with a dust shroud and vacuum. These tools can be rented in most areas. Grind from the top of the wall to the floor a 9inch wide at each location.

3. Vacuum the ground wall areas very well to remove all dust.

4. Mix a batch of Carbon Fiber Resin epoxy and using the roller apply to the wall.

5. Apply Epoxy to the side of the carbon fiber to be bonded to the wall.

6. Place the Unidirectional carbon fiber strap to the epoxied concrete wall.

7. Apply more epoxy to the surface of the strap and using a trowel force the epoxy through the strap. Move to the next strap.

 

 

Q. When Would I Use Different Sizes of Carbon Fiber Straps?

A. For MCU Block walls 8inch and 12inch width provides the best support. For poured concrete is when 6in and 8in wide is used as the concrete itself is solid through the wall, unlike hollow block.

Q. What Causes a Bowed a Wall to Bow?

A. This is caused by hydrostatic soil pressure from water-saturated soil, expansive soil, and when it freezes pushing against the foundation walls. This can take many years to develop but generally only gets worse over time.

Q. If I Apply the Straps at Less Than 4ft on Center Is That Better?

A. It can provide more support especially if the concrete is weak, small area, or there is extensive cracking.

Q. How Are Stair Step Cracks Addressed?

A. A basement with this problem can apply two-strap layers, vertical and horizontal at the same location that will provide the least movement.

Q. Isn't the 12in 300GSM Carbon Weaker Vs a 6 in Wide Heaver 600 GSM Strap?

A. No, The concrete of a wall is the weak point. So using a wider strap spreads out the load to more surface area of the wall to reduce loading per given area. The concrete will fail long before the the-unidirectional carbon will. Having a small surface area will break the bond before a large area would.

Q. Some Kits Have a Metal Plate at the Top of Each Carbon Strap Is This Needed?

A. This depends, with block walls it allows the strap to attach to the sill plate. For a poured concrete wall this will not help. For most block walls there are better solutions to this. Top sill plate anchors can split the sill under load, Standard hurricane ties installed at every joist may help or and under-mounted plank would be better. This prevents the top of the foundation from slipping inward when the sill plate is missing or not attached.

Q. What Is the Purpose of Bottom Wall Anchors?

A. In most installations they are not required. For block, bottom anchors can act as sheer pins stopping a block from sliding inward. However, if the basement floor is poured up against the bottom course of block sheer is unlikely. Should the block start from the surface of the basement floor, simple rebar angle iron can act as sheer pins.

Q. Can I Place Two Straps Side by Side Will This Be the Same As a Strap That Is Twice the Width?

A. Yes placing two unidirectional carbon fiber straps side by side is the same as one wider strap.

Q. How Does a Unidirectional Strap Hold a Bowing the Wall Up?

A. Straps bonded to the inside walls transfer and load across any cracking to a larger area. This in turn will bring the wall back to its original strength.

 

 

 

1. Always consider strapping a complete wall, one side of the foundation to get the most benefit from wall reinforcement.

2. Always strap both sides of any window openings.

3. Do not exceed the 4ft on center spacing of straps, but closer spacing adds to the reinforcement. If you have a window opening for example 3ft from a corner your first strap would be at 3 ft beside the window.

4. Any cracks on the wall where the carbon is applied need to be filled with something solid such as epoxy or cement grout.

5. Any cracks under window openings can be strapped horizontally under the opening and over the nearest vertical straps.

6. Top of wall support will be needed if the top sill plate or floor joists are sliding in. See the example of solving this.
