What Is Rhino Carbon Fiber?
Rhino carbon fiber is a patented carbon fiber system that repairs bowed foundation walls as well as prevents other foundation-related obstacles. Carbon fiber repairs bowed walls by linking the foundation base with the house framing. It can also be utilized to repair other forms of damage such as:
- small and large cracks
- stair stepping cracks in concrete
- leaking cracks
- hairline cracks
- waterproofing issues
Basically, Rhino carbon fiber wall supports structurally repairs walls, repairs cracks, stops cracks from moving and prevents further water from entering a basement or crawl space. The carbon fiber is fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a carbon fiber pin. Deterioration does not occur because the carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall allowing for an even distribution of outside pressure.
One Solution, Lots of Benefits
There are several benefits to using carbon fiber wall supports, but one of the most common solutions is that of bowed walls. Because bowed walls are caused by the soil load under the foundation, there are other foundation repair products that can help like wall tiebacks and beams. However, carbon fiber strips are secured to the foundation floor which makes this system the industry standard when amending walls. In addition, because outside pressure is directed towards the middle of the foundation wall, the wall needs added support so the outside pressure is dispersed through the entire wall.
