Areas of application

As a rule, masonry has only a very low tensile strength so that they can take only pressure uses as planned.

Tensile loads are still present in the masonry, e.g. by:

  • uneven setting in the foundation soil
  • shrinkage deformation
  • deformation due to temperature changes
  • load relocations / notch stress
  • vibrations
  • material fatigue
  • defective or damaged construction
  • load increases after change of use

These lead to crackings and other instabilities.

With the Ruberstein ® spiral anchor system can be repaired simply and at a reasonable price resulted damages. The masonry is reinforced for a damage-free deflection of future tensile loads.

There are three reconstruction procedures:

The spiral anchor system is used successfully with restoration and securing of natural stone- and decorative elements.
