Basement Wall Crack Repair
There are 3 types of wall movements that lead to basement wall cracks and failures. Proper wall repair requires a 3-part system for a complete solution.
Bowed Wall Solution
A basement wall that is cracked and bowing is repaired using our Carbon-Kevlar strap. Fortress has the strongest strap and system available. The strap keeps the wall from further bowing. The Fortress strap uses our Epoxy Rivet Technology (ERT) which forms a 2-part adhesive bond that acts like 8,000 mechanical rivets ensuring that your wall is stronger than the original.
Sheared Wall Solution
A basement wall that is cracked and sheared needs to be repaired using our bottom anchor that attaches to our Carbon-Kevlar strap. Because preventing shear requires strength, we made our bottom anchor over 5 times thicker and 125 times stiffer than the competition. We use a dual leg solution with specific contact lengths engineered to achieve a 200% safety factor. Our bottom plate anchor is the best in the industry.
Tipped Wall Solution
A basement wall that is tipped needs to be repaired using our top anchor that attaches to our Carbon-Kevlar strap. The Fortress top anchor is mechanically fastened to the rim joist to engage with the building’s floor system, providing a stronger, more durable anchor. Fortress has the only top anchor that utilizes post-tensioning technology. This prevents any movement of the basement wall.
The Fortress System uses Carbon Fiber that is stronger than steel.
