Carbon Fiber Fixes Bowing Walls

Carbon fiber is thinner than a dime, stronger than steel and the solution to your bowing, buckling or cracked foundation walls.

Rhino Carbon Fiber sheets can be installed with epoxy to your basement walls. The sheets are then fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a pin.

The strongest man-made material in the world, carbon fiber was used in the space shuttles, on airplane wings and to fix bridges. It’s found in motorcycle helmets and bullet-proof vests and can be the solution for your basement wall troubles.

What is Carbon Fiber?

Carbon fiber is a lightweight material made up of millions of small fibers of carbon woven together. It can be made into fabric sheets or melted down and molded into various shapes.

Rhino Carbon Fiber® excels at manufacturing products for foundation repair.

Not only does their bi-directional support system repair bowed foundations walls but it can also be utilized to repair other forms of damage in foundations.

Rhino’s repair system works on large and small cracks, stair-stepping cracks in concrete block walls, leaking cracks, and hairline cracks that crack injection alone won’t fix. 

Thie system structurally repairs the cracks, stops them from moving, and prevents water from entering the basement.

How does the Rhino system work?

To do so, carbon fiber sheets are bonded to a wall with epoxy. Patented Rhino wall supports link the foundation base with a home’s framing.

Carbon fiber is both fastened to the sill plate and secured to the foundation floor.

The sheets are then fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a pin.

Once in place and the epoxy has cured (can take days or weeks, depending on the temperature and humidity), the smooth, flat finish of the fibers can be painted or covered with wall panels.

After installation, the sheets can be painted and are nearly invisible.

Deterioration does not occur because the carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall, allowing for an even distribution of outside pressure.

Because the system attaches to the top sill plate and at the bottom of the wall, it can be used to fix foundations that have moved at the top and/or bottom, but not in the middle. (A type of movement is known as foundation shearing.) 

Rhino Carbon Fiber has a limited lifetime, transferable warranty.
