Strucsol Ultrabar: An engineered solution for masonry repairs & reinforcement

Helical bars play a vital role in masonry repair and reinforcement. Crafted from 304 or 316 grade stainless steel, each bar undergoes cold rolling & cold twisting to further harden the steel and enhance its tensile strength three fold.

1. Purpose and Benefits:

From crack stitching to lintel reinforcement, Ultrabar Helical Bars offer a proven engineered solution for restoring and strengthening masonry structures. These bars are not only affordable but canbe installed without prior experience needed. 

By increasing tensile strength and structural stability to brick, block, and stone walls, they increase the structure's ability to absorb changing loads without failure.

2. Versatility:

Helical bars are extremely versatile. They can be cut to any desired length and bent to fit the required shape. Whether reinforcing lintels around windows and doors or providing extra strength in footings, parapets, arches, and retaining walls, helical bars increase the only weak element in masonry by adding tensile strength.

3. Installation Recommendations:

For optimal performance, we recommend fitting helical bars with either Strucsol HS Grout or polyester/EASF resin. This ensures an effective bond and enhances the tensile and flexural structure of masonry walls.

4. Available Sizes:

Strucsol Ultrabar Helical Bars comes in the following sizes:

  • 4mm Helical Bar: Available in 1m and 10m lengths.
  • 6mm Helical Bar: Available in 1m and 10m lengths.
  • 8mm Helical Bar: Available in 1m and 10m lengths.

5. Additional Uses:

Beyond crack stitching and lintel repair, helical bars have multiple applications:

  • Lintel Repair
  • Crack Stitching
  • Providing Extra Strength in parapets, Arches, and Retaining Walls
  • Creating Masonry Beams to Span Localized Subsidence
  • Wall Ties
