Dissipative Anchor Protects Against Earthquakes

Description

This dissipative wall anchor solves the issues of how to protect heritage buildings in some of the most earthquake-prone parts of the world.

The standard Cintec anchor system consists of a stainless steel anchor body encapsulated in a fabric sock. Diamond holes are drilled into the building and each anchor is placed in a hole.A specialized grout is pumped to the far end of the anchor, filling from back to front until the entire sock is inflated like a balloon. After the anchor has been inflated, the walls have been securely strengthened without affecting the outside appearance of the building.
