When it comes to structural strengthening, many construction professionals prefer using carbon fibre strips over conventional steel reinforcements, due to their versatility, flexibility and superior strength to mass ratio. When you work with experts who specialise in carbon fibre strengthening, they will devise a precise load bearing profile for your structure.
Utilising this profile, a specific recommendation is then formulated, on how best to apply carbon fibre in order to achieve the required PSI, or the amount of pressure on your structures. There are many different uses of carbon fibre strengthening, some of which might seem less obvious than others. Consider the following uses of carbon fibre:
• Strengthening of columns;
• Reinforcement of concrete slabs;
• Enhancement of structural strength;
• Strengthening of concrete structures; and
• Pre-stressed, reinforced concrete beams, to name a few.
