Carbon fibre strengthening

Carbon fibre is a newer material in building and construction, but its efficacy has been proven in the relatively short time it has been used. Compared to using steel reinforcement, carbon fibre is non-corrosive and light weight while maintaining high tensile strength.

Carbon fibre is a great way to reinforce structures that are degrading or have additional load added to them and need the reinforcement to carry more weight. There are a range of structures that carbon fibre strengthening can be applied to including concrete beams, columns and slabs.
