Structural strenghtening

The main requirements for a project of building preservation, both for valuable and for traditional buildings, must be:
  • Specific: based on know-how and respectful for existing buildings
  • Effective: they must guarantee a good safety level
  • Little invasive: the strengthening plan must tend to minimum intervention
  • Must guarantee a good performance with the passing of time
  • Must restore the original functions of the structure
We can plan the interventions using:
  • Chains or retaining rings to to hold back the action of pushing elements
  • Seam bars on cracks
  • Tension rods inserted in the wall to increase resistance, improve the general performance of the structure and aseismic effect
  • Carbon fibers
  • Fiber glass and composite materials

In the former case the intervention requires the use of machinery. We must fix anchors in some holes drilled in the wall to strengthen, using core boring machines with rotating diamond drill, with “dry” or “water” technology without harmful water leaking in the wall.  The drilling is the most delicate step of the process; it must be carried out by professionals with long experience that can guarantee a good anchor fixing and a succesfull intervention. In case of fiber use, instead, we strengthen the mix on 3D, a process followed in building since the oldest historical ages. In fact, traces of animal/vegetable fibers added in the mix of raw soil or mortar were found in primitives’ huts, near pyramids, in ancient Greek settlements as well as in massive Roman buildings. This is a really interesting device that can increase the behaviour, performance and applicability of the mix

Diamantech is the first in Italy, since the year 2000, to install the BOSSONG system: stainless steel bar with a micro-perforated fabric mortar and controlled injection system.
