Building Strengthening Applications
The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® advanced composite systems can be used to increase the strength of existing beams, slabs, walls, columns and connections. Building strengthening applications typically include seismic retrofit, strengthening due to corrosion, change of use (e.g. commercial to residential, the addition of high-capacity filing systems, computer servers, topping slab material, HVAC equipment, heavy machinery, removal of bays and addition of new openings), or in some cases, the correction of an existing defect due to a construction or design error.
The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems have been implemented in hospitals, government structures, churches, schools, parking structures, office buildings, homes and many other structures. These buildings have been both occupied and un-occupied at the time of retrofit.
