Thor Helical Remedial Lateral Restraints are a reliable, low cost and minimal disruption solution to the buckling of brick walls. This is often cause by excessive vertical loads and inadequate mechanical connection between perimeter walls and the main structure of the building.
Lateral Restraint products are for reconnecting and strengthening bulging walls; one for tying the perimeter walls to the more stable floor diaphragm structure or to stud walls, and other for strengthening the connection between the masonry facade and walls that run perpendicular to it, such as masonry partition walls and party walls.
The lateral restraint bars are ideal for tying back in of gable walls where they have started to lean out from the building.
