Crack Stitching Repair for Brick Walls

Twistfix Crack Stitching Guide Crack Stitching Guide Twistfix Crack Stitching Specification Crack Stitching Specification

Crack stitching is a masonry repair technique that reconnects and reinforces cracked walls. Twistfix supplies a range of masonry rein­for­cement products including stainless steel helical bars that stitch across the fractures to strengthen and repair cracks.

When tying cracks in face brickwork these high strength bars are grouted into slots cut into mortar beds, ensuring the reinforcement is discreetly concealed once the mortar joint is pointed. Tensile forces are redistributed along the wall to dissipate load and minimise the risk of further cracking.

Method Statement

  • Remove mortar along selected bed joints.
  • Flush with clean water and bond helical bars (should extend 500mm each side of crack) into each slot using WHO-60 grout. Where several cracks in close proximity they can be stitched in tandem using one continuous bar.
  • Fill and seal fissure to prevent the ingress of water
  • Depth of the slots should be 30mm on single leaf brickwork and 45mm on a solid double brick wall. Thicker walls should be stitched from both sides.
  • Bars should be spaced at 300mm to 450mm intervals

When repairing fractures in rendered walls the reinforcing bars can be installed directly into the brick units to bind them together and, where shear strength is an issue, to permit the use of diagonal rein­for­cement. Stitching offers a quick, easy and reliable method of restoring the structural integrity of cracked walls at cost effective prices.
