We use the Rotafix Resiwood Systems to achieve Low Disturbance Structural Restoration of Timbers. The method involves cutting out decayed timber and replacing this with reinforced resin.

The systems may also be used to increase the strength of existing overloaded structural timbers.

Using the Rotafix systems we will provide you with solutions for repair and strengthening of a very wide range of structural timber members including;
Wall Plates
Wind Turbine Blades
Glulam Beams and
Lock Gates
Carbon Fibre Reinforcement
Working in conjunction with Rotafix, we are expanding the use of Carbon Fibre Tape Reinforcement as an alternative to the more conventional steel reinforcement.

Rotafix Ltd have included a case study of the work we carried out to reinforce a floor beam at Chetham’s Library in Manchester, originally constructed in 1421.
Watch a video of the preparatory works where we use a chain saw to cut slots in the beam of this Grade 1 listed structure.

Please contact us to discuss your particular structural timber failure issues. We will be pleased to visit and offer remedial solutions.
