Carbon Fiber Strengthening
Widely used in structural engineering applications, light-weight high-strength carbon fibers can be used to reinforce structural elements such as concrete slabs, columns and beams, as well as masonry walls and wood trusses. From basic concrete repairs and seismic retrofitting to increasing the load capacity of a structure originally designed to withstand far lower service loads, Everclear Enterprises, Inc. uses this composite strengthening system to structurally upgrade and protect existing structures. Carbon fiber added to existing structures can both extend the life of the structure, as well as add flexibility to its original design. Not only can this solution be very cost effective, but also it is often the least disruptive approach to addressing structural deficiencies to existing structures, allowing them to be functional again in a relatively short period of time.
