As we get ready to work in yet another Elevator Shaft project I just wanted to show you how easy a Cement Based Structural Stucco us to apply, even in the most difficult conditions. For further information link to – https://www.conspec-rep.com/contact-us/ –
Cintec Cement Based Socked Anchors can be any length, any steel size, including tubular, round or square, installed at any angle, including overhead and provide a FIREPROOF anchor, especially important in the case of fire in Cavity Walls. Penetration of Steel beams or columns for attachment of any material, including stone and terracotta of any size or weight, only dependent on the substrates ability to support it.
CINTEC PROVIDES CALCULATIONS TO THE EOR, STRUCTURAL ENGINEER.
Socked based cement anchors, whether HeliFix or Cintec, are easier to install than resin anchors with almost no waste compared to resin anchors and are fireproof. Installation shown is using plastics inserts for a battery operated bulk cement gun but can be used with just a regular battery or even air operated gun using no sleeves and just filling the tube itself. For high volume projects or long anchors, a pressure pot can be used to facilitate the larger volumes and for the greatest efficiency a peristaltic, continuous feed pump is ideal.
PORTABLE CEMENT BULK GUN
Considering all the concerns regarding cavity walls and the need for Controlled Inspection bases solely on Resin Based Anchors consider the ease of installation and Fireproof property of a cement based anchor. Cintec anchors can be any size and custom made for things like Window Installation in Rubble Walls or Attachment of face wall to steel beams or columns.
THE PROBLEM – Hotel need to provide 200 pipe penetrations through the Speedtile arch which was a major concern as it would cause distress to the stability of the individual tiles and the arch.
RUREGOLD SOLUTION – Place a 2 foot by 2 foot Ruregold “Patch” at each penetration to strengthen the face of the Speedtile prior to diamond drilling the penetrations from the bottom, which would allow for ease of penetration by drilling without damage to the tile.
When fixing a window in a rubble wall which has inconsistent infill many time mechanical and even resin anchors will nor perform well or consistently. It is in these conditions where a cement based socked anchor provides the ideal solution to cover any voids or cavities. Even in Speedtile or CMU walls this system provides maximum anchorage in a fire rated anchor and is easily installed.
Considering there are typically two owners involved in every LL37 Retaining Wall project simplicity is key.
The philosophy of SIP vs ROAR starts with removing or repairing as little as possible, continues with all operations being performed from the “OWNER’S” side and involves turning an unreinforced masonry structure into a reinforced masonry structure with a series of socked anchors, including post-tensioned, and involving the backfill as necessary but all contained within the fabric of the structure itself. The detail above is but one solution provided in a complete manual designed by Cintec available from ConSpec by placing the words “Cintec Retaining Wall Manual” in the subject line of the contact sheet on this web site ( https://www.conspec-rep.com/contact-us/ ).

SIDEWALKS – Better, Faster, Cheaper, also more durable and longer lasting. Eliminating rebar or any metal mesh in sidewalks will accomplish all of the above, If the major portion of the commercial SOG (Slab-On-Grade) community is moving in that direction with non metallic Structural Fiber for major warehousing and manufacturing floors, use for sidewalks just makes sense. Let your Ready Mix provider provide your reinforcing and eliminate all the hassle of rebar placement. Available through your local concrete supplier.
