The Force: Tension Loaded... A Brace Beyond The Rest
Experiencing Extreme Foundation Failure? Force the issue!
|Extreme Failures Demand Extreme Force! The Force of Nature…
Reversed! Constant soil pressure and movement can lead to severely damaged concrete foundation walls … buckling, cracking, and often worse. When this force of nature moves in, The Force structural bracing system, counteracts the stress!
The Force is a patented system structural tension-loaded, steel I-beam reinforcement system that is designed to straighten block or concrete walls over time. Not an alternative to The Reinforcer, The Force is recommended in more extreme cases of concrete crack repair where the bowing is in excess of 2-inches or the wall has severely shifted.
Unique Spring-Coil Design … Applies 1,000 lbs. of Constant Pressure!
Without excavation or homeowner assistance, The Force's unique I-beam/spring-coil design helps straighten walls over time. Unlike other bracket-based systems, The Force utilizes a tension-loaded spring design that supplies a constant 1000-pound force on the wall.
During hot, dry weather conditions the soil dries out, reducing its pressure, and shrinks away from walls. This is when Forces' tension-load spring goes to work … physically straightening and structurally supporting the wall permanently!
Easy to Install … No Invasive Measures Required!
Easy to install, The Force utilizes two concrete anchors on the bottom bracket of the I-beam; the tension-loaded spring system anchors at the top.
Self-sustaining, cost-effective and maintenance free, The Force can also be used as a temporary support to straighten the wall with excavation and then install The Reinforcer.
Reverse your concrete foundations' fortune… Force It Forward!
Designed To Straighten Walls Over Time.
As in most cases, the best defense for foundation problems is a good offense, that's why The Force is part of a family of foundation repair breakthroughs manufactured and distributed by Nationwide Reinforcing Ltd.
In addition to the Force, the company also produces the patented carbon composite fiber technology system called The Reinforcer®: made of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer, externally bonded 4" wide and 0.045" thick.
The Reinforcer Shield
Rounding out the foundation matrix is The Reinforcer Shield,™ a unidirectional sheet/fabric made with high-strength carbon or glass fibers. This product provides the capability of conforming to irregular shapes such as circular or square columns. It's excellent for flexural and shear strengthening and can provide a water proofing membrane for foundation walls.
Nationwide Reinforcing Ltd. is also a member of The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI), The National Association of Waterproofing and Structural Repair Contractors (NAWSRC) and The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
