1. Ideal for poured concrete walls that have cracked and will be repaired with epoxy injection. Carbon fiber Installed every 4ft along the foundation wall will prevent re-cracking of a concrete wall.

2. Ideal for concrete block walls that are starting to show horizontal mortar joint cracks installed spacing on 4ft centers. For weak or more severely stressed block walls we recommend the 12-inch wide unidirectional carbon fiber to apply the load on a larger area.

This is an easy-to-use Carbon Fiber Foundation repair kit designed to reinforce up to 40 ft of wall. When strapped and bonded every 4 ft. The kit is ideal for Bowed wall support for Block or Poured cracked foundation walls. An 8-inch wide strap provides more bonding surface area than our competitors. The higher surface area allows the carbon fiber wall straps to hold more lateral load of the foundation wall. The Professional Carbon Fiber Wall Repair Kit offers the most dependable permanent repair solution for cracked bowing poured concrete or block foundation walls.

If you have a cracked or slightly bowed wall, you need to make use of the advantages and usefulness of Carbon Fiber Straps.

Several factors decide the tensile strength of a wall reinforcement solution, including its design, construction, and binding technology. The selection by NextStar allows extreme strength and stability with this kit. Higher specification quality of the carbon fiber itself. This kit includes Unidirectional 300 GSM x 8 inches wide carbon fiber with a tensile strength of 4800 Mpa. Unidirectional carbon with most of our competitors use 450-550 GSM rated at 703Mpa tensile strength, which is lower in strength and load capacity. The wider straps allow transferring out the stress load on the concrete wall. The concrete will fail before the carbon fiber wall reinforcement will.

 

Unidirectional Carbon Fiber Design

Most carbon fiber foundation repair kit manufacturers make use of a bidirectional fiber system, wherein the carbon fibers are woven into a pattern. Although this creates a visually appealing design, it is more flexible under load. The woven fibers get crimped as they bend when woven. As force is applied to carbon fiber, the bent fibers try to straighten out, which reduces their strength and effectiveness. For a Bowed foundation wall, you want the repair to be as stiff as possible stabilizing movement.

This NextStar Professional kit features a unidirectional design. The fibers lay flat when the force is applied, and there is no crimping. The result is a wall reinforcement system that is twice as strong as other carbon fiber repair products in the market. For these reasons, no other foundation wall reinforcement system in the construction industry comes even close in strength, stability, and durability. This makes it the best choice for repairing foundation walls and basement walls.

 

1. Measure the wall for placement of the wall straps to avoid exceeding 4ft spacing and placing straps on both sides of any windows.

Example placement of strapping with obstacles in the way

2. Prepare the wall using a hand grinder with a diamond cup wheel with dust shroud and vacuum. These tools can be rented in most areas. Grind from the top of the wall to the floor a 9-inch wide at each location.

3. Vacuum the ground wall areas very well to remove all dust.

4. Mix a batch of Carbon Fiber Resin epoxy and using the roller apply it to the wall.

5. Apply Epoxy to the side of the carbon fiber to be bonded to the wall.

6. Place the Unidirectional carbon fiber strap on the epoxied concrete wall.

7. Apply more epoxy to the surface of the strap and using a trowel force the epoxy through the strap. Move to the next strap.

 

 

Q. Why is carbon fiber spaced at 4ft on foundation walls?

A. This is an industry and engineering standard for foundation wall support even for steel beams, not brand-dependent.

 

Q. If I apply the straps at less than 4ft spacing is that better?

A. It can provide more support especially if the concrete is weak, small area or there is extensive cracking.

 

Q. Some kits have a metal plate at the top of each carbon strap is this needed?

A. This depends, with block walls it allows the strap to attach to the sill plate. For a poured concrete wall this will not help. For most block walls there are better solutions to this. Top sill plate anchors can split the sill under load.

 

Q. I am concerned that this will be difficult to apply the straps.

A. This kit or product can be successfully applied by a contractor or homeowner without difficulty. The basics are that 1. Do not exceed the 4ft spacing. 2. That the wall be ground to exposed to fresh clean concrete. 3 Apply enough Epoxy to saturate the carbon strap. 4 Not sure on anything call our technical support team.

 

Q. What is the purpose of bottom wall anchors?

A. In most installations they are not required. For block CMU, bottom anchors can act as sheer pins stopping a block from sliding inward. However, if the basement floor is poured up against the bottom course of blocks sheer is unlikely. Only if the block begins on top of the basement floor.

Q. How is the carbon Fiber is supplied and how do I cut it into straps?

A. Unidirectional carbon fiber is supplied in uncut rolls and be cut with sharp scissors on any flat surface.


Q.
Can I place two straps side by side will this be the same as a strap that is twice the width?

A. Yes placing two unidirectional carbon fiber straps side by side is the same as one wider strap.

Q. How does a unidirectional strap hold a bowing the wall up?

A. Straps bonded to the inside walls transfer and load across any cracking to a larger area. This in turn will bring the wall back to its or

 

Q. Why is Uni-Directional Carbon Fiber better than Bi-directional carbon fiber for concrete wall support?

A. Uni-directional carbon fiber has the least amount of movement. Therefore, if applied after crack repair, this will protect that process. However, bi-directional carbon may allow enough movement to cause the crack repair process to fail.

Q. How Long do carbon Fiber Staps last?

A. Carbon fiber straps will last the life of the structure if applied correctly.

Q. How do I apply the carbon if I need support in two different directions?

A. Uni-directional carbon fiber can be applied in both directions, with one overlapping the other but still providing the least amount of movement.

Q. How can I use Carbon Fiber Straps of a failed foundation corner?

A. Corner reinforcement is accomplished by exposing the exterior corner of the foundation and applying the straps horizontally wrapped around the corner minimum of 8 ft long with 2-4 ft spacing between the straps. The carbon fiber strap epoxy exposed to sunlight above grade must be protected with paint or cement parging.

 

 

1. Always consider strapping a complete wall, one side of the foundation to get the most benefit from wall reinforcement.

2. Always strap both sides of any window openings.

3. Do not exceed the 4ft on center spacing of straps, but closer spacing adds to the reinforcement. If you have a window opening for example 3ft from a corner your first strap would be at 3ft beside the window.

4. Any cracks on the wall where the carbon is applied need to be filled with something solid such as epoxy or cement grout.

5. Any cracks under window openings can be strapped horizontally under the opening and over the nearest vertical straps.

6. Top of wall support will be needed if the top sill plate or floor joists are sliding in. See an example of solving this.

7. If using these straps on a corner repair they are installed on the exterior mounted horizontally 2- 4 ft spacing.
