Commercial and Industrial Applications
When the activity inside a factory or other industrial building changes, so can its structural support needs. Our solutions can be used to add strength to existing beams, slabs and columns to support the addition of everything from high-capacity filing systems, computer servers and topping slab material to HVAC equipment and heavy machinery. They can also provide the structural reinforcement needed when bays are removed to allow the addition of new openings or when residential buildings are retrofitted for commercial use.
Tyfo® Fibrwrap® composite systems can also be used to strengthen structures that no longer have their original design strength due to construction error, corrosion or increased loading. Specialized Tyfo® composite anchors and connectors are designed to address specific project requirements. Our Tyfo® product line includes fire-rated finishes for both Class 1/Class A flame and smoke as well as for a 2-hour to 4-hour rating (UL listings available).
Because of their high strength-to-weight ratio and ease of installation, Tyfo® Fibrwrap® composite systems are ideal for strengthening industrial structures. Easily installed around existing equipment and instrumentation, construction of time-sensitive repairs can be completed with minimal impact to operations, significantly shortening shutdown times.
