Use Crack Stitching products for lasting masonry repairs that reconnect and reinforce cracked walls. Twistfix supplies a selection of stainless steel masonry reinforcements. Helical bars that can stitch cracks and strengthen brickwork are pivotal to this range.
Stitching cracked walls with helical bars is the 'go-to' crack repair specification from many insurers, councils, and engineers. With increasing numbers of building professionals involved in such work, many turn to Twistfix for the best structural supplies at low trade prices.
Stitch across cracks in face brickwork by bonding stainless steel helical bars into slots cut into mortar beds. Then point the slot to conceal the masonry reinforcement.
Each hidden bar accumulates tensile forces and spreads the loads along the helix. Installing a series of bars creates a reinforced zone. The evenly dispersed loads minimise the risk of further cracking.
Crack Stitching products are not limited to use in bed-joint reinforcement. Helical bars can be fitted directly into the brick units when repairing fractures in rendered walls to bind bricks together. Where there is no need to disguise the bars within the mortar, diagonal reinforcement or the use of heavier bars is viable where shear strength is an issue.
Crack stitching is quick, easy and reliable. Use our cost-effective helical bars to restore strength and stability to cracked walls.
Our UK-made helix-shaped rods are available in many diameters, lengths and pack sizes. The stainless steel bars provide superb strength and corrosion resistance. Rigorous tests show our bed joint reinforcement products meet and exceed the performance standard of BS EN 845-1. Installation of the bars requires the use of WHO 60 masonry repair grout. The gout is also available from Twistfix separately or in one of our crack stitching kits.
