This 100-piece pack of crack stitching rods is cost-effective for those in the building trade regularly repairing brick and masonry buildings. The stainless-steel helical bars offer a permanent retrofit reinforcement solution for fractured walls that will last the lifetime of the building.
The helix-shaped rods are quick and easy to install. Use WHO 60 polymer-modified grout to secure a series of 6mm stitching rods into pre-wet slots cut into the wall. Ensure the stitching bars span 500mm on each side of the crack and space the rods 300mm to 450mm apart. Fill all cracks and repoint the bed joints to restore the original character of the wall.
Fitting high-tensile 6mm helical rods across fractures in brick, block and stone walls reconnects and fortifies weakened brickwork. The grout-bonded stitching rods absorb concentrated building loads and evenly distribute the stress along the entire length of the bars. The reinforced zone restores the structural integrity of fractured brickwork and provides lasting resilience against further cracking.
Twistfix 6 mm crack stitching rods comply with BS EN 845-1. A single WHO-60 grouted rod withstands 8.4 kN in tension. The resistance increases by installing two bars in one slot to 16 kN.
