Through their technology, Fibrwrap Rehabilitation Systems (FRS®) offer a series of advantages to industrial facility owners. These are prolongation of expected life of existing structures, undisturbed productivity during repair works, reduction of maintenance cost and minimum environmental footprint.
Existing industrial facilities made of reinforced concrete, including buildings, silos, and chimneys, are in a continuous need for repair due to the nature of the surroundings and the heavy use. Fibrwrap enhances its expertise through an engineered approach of identifying the root of the problem, hence offering a long term solution in structural repair and restoration of structures.
The result is prolongation of expected life of existing structures giving the owner the advantage of cutting down on costs of maintenance. It is also proven through many applications that the FRS® can resist corrosion, when applied to concrete in aggressive environments. Also, the significantly small environmental footprint of the application of composite materials, in contrast with other more traditional methods, is a major advantage to the client.
Especially for silos and chimneys, Fibrwrap has developed application techniques in order to provide a quick result, hence allowing the owner to commence operation within a small time frame. The FRS® are ideal for strengthening industrial structures because of their high strength-to-weight ratio and their ease of installation. They can be installed with minimal impact to the operations of the structure and are easily installed around existing equipment and instrumentation.
Owners, not only benefit from the minimal or non-disturbance of normal operation, but also from the significant decrease in maintenance cost and the extension of the service life of their facilities.
