Masonry Repair and Reinforcement Anchor SystemCINTEC Worldwide
CINTEC Reinforcing Anchor System is a micro cement anchoring and reinforcing technique to repair and renovation existing buildings. The process begins with an inspection of the structure by a qualified CINTEC engineer. The best reinforcement pattern is then determined. The system is inserted into the structure in need of reinforcement. A specially developed, non-polymer, cement-like grout is injected into the sleeve under low pressure. Then, the grout fuses with the mesh, expands and shapes itself around the steel to fit the space.
Masonry Cavity Drainage DeviceKeene Building Products
Mayfield Heights, Ohio
Keene Building Products is manufacturing a masonry cavity drainage device, the KeeneStone Cut, a three-dimensional, geometric patterned core with a high loft fabric laminated to one side. The highly compressible fabric is able to slightly compress to fill the cavity, allowing it to change thickness up to one-half inch to prevent any mortar blockage. This product is designed to catch, and hold mortar dropping, while allowing moisture to pass through, and keep the weep holes open. The KeeneStone Cut is placed in a strip horizontally in a masonry cavity wall requiring no mechanical fasteners, and is manufactured to be 10-inches in height within the cavity.
