Commercial Retrofit and Strengthening with Carbon Fiber
Problem vs Solution
- A change of use required additional capacity not present in the historic beams and slabs
- StrongHold™ was designed by professional engineers to increase capacity to accommodate future dead and live load
- StrongHold™ was applied to beams for shear and flexural strengthening
- StrongHold™ was applied to top and bottom of slabs to address increased positive and negative moments
- Beams and slabs were upgraded with a 50-yr design life
