Currently, there is a growing trend related to the diversification of spaces and replanning. The idea of transforming spaces is gaining momentum. This is mainly expressed in the desire to expand or merge living quarters. Dismantling partitions is not difficult, so the key, and the most difficult, aspect of this is the interaction with the structural scheme of the building, specifically, cutting openings in load-bearing walls. The implementation of such actions can cause a decrease in the load-bearing capacity of the structure and even lead to its destruction.
Modern technologies, namely the FibArm system of external reinforcement, assist in solving such a difficult problem. The use of composite carbon materials will help to find a solution to even the most complex and unusual situations.
Through-holes meant for use as openings can be different in form and purpose, such as those for the doors, windows, panels, etc.
Scope of application
Openings are used in the construction of industrial, cultural, welfare, public and residential facilities. Opening strengthening is performed on concrete and brick walls to prevent failures in load-bearing structures experiencing seismic and static loads.
We perform strengthening for door and window openings in walls:
