Structural Strengthening describes the process of upgrading the structural system of an existing building to improve performance under existing loads or to increase the strength of structural components to carry additional loads.
Each structure requiring upgrade and strengthening presents a unique challenge. The need for strengthening may arise from deterioration, change in use, change in building code, structural defects, construction errors, or seismic conditions. Whether strengthening Commercial and Civil Structures or Industrial Structures and Bridges, NCS is capable of providing the most suitable product and repair solution.
The structural strengthening capabilities of NCS extend to externally bonded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) products - thin laminates that significantly increase a structures load bearing capacity. NCS is able to apply a wide range of FRP wraps and laminate strips to a variety of structures requiring strengthening.
