End-to-End Strengthening Solutions
STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES has a strategic alliance with Simpson Strong-Tie throughout North America. This alliance enables us to jointly deliver comprehensive repair and strengthening solutions to engineers, general contractors, and owners across multiple market sectors.
The combination of innovative products, design support, and installation services allows us to deliver fully integrated design-build solutions from identification of the application through construction implementation.
The state-of-the-art CSS V-WrapTM systems utilize durable, high-strength carbon fiber and glass fibers bonded with adhesive resins. They are used to restore or increase the load-carrying capacity, ductility, and seismic resistance of structures – ideally suited for applications with limited access and/or complex geometries.
- Shear Capacity Improvement
- Flexural Capacity Improvement
- Compression Capacity
- Force Protection
- Seismic Retrofit & Repair
- Crack Control
- New Slab Penetrations
Utilized on a variety of structures, including buildings, bridges, silos, and tanks to increase capacity while also improving ductility and overall seismic performance.
CSS V-Wrap™ products are ICC certified (ESR 4930), meeting or exceeding industry standards for long-term durability.
Composites have a very high strength-to-weight ratio – allowing for structural enhancement using a low profile system, minimizing aesthetic impact. Installations typically have a maximum thickness between 1/8 and 1/4 inch.
