Earthquakes can cause major disruption in our region and, in the worst cases, loss of life. Finding cost-effective practical ways of improving the structural performance of our vulnerable buildings and infrastructure is essential.
For many years Helifix remedial ties, fixings and reinforcements have proved effective in maintaining and restoring structural integrity to aged, weathered and damaged masonry. Now, these cost-effective retrofit systems are being extensively used in seismic areas to add strength and ductility to masonry when upgrading structures or restoring earthquake damaged sites.

Crack stitching and limestone pinning were just some of the techniques used by Helifix to restore structural integrity to buildings affected by the 2011 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. To view some of our seismic projects click here.
