RAAC Concrete: Structural Repair Solutions

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) has been widely used in the construction of buildings, particularly during the 1950s to 1980s. However, many RAAC structures have been found to suffer from structural issues, leading to concerns about their safety and longevity. At Structural Repairs, we are the only company currently offering a permanent fix solution using our proprietary repair technology.

The Challenges of RAAC Structures

RAAC is a lightweight, porous material that offers good thermal insulation properties. Unfortunately, it is also prone to several issues, including:

Cracking and spalling due to moisture ingress
Corrosion of steel reinforcement
Reduced load-bearing capacity over time
Degradation due to chemical reactions within the material

These issues can compromise the structural integrity of RAAC buildings, posing risks to occupants and requiring immediate attention.

Our Exclusive Structural Repair Solution: Re-Grid Carbon Strips

At Structural Repairs, we have developed an innovative and effective solution to address the major issues associated with RAAC structures.
Our approach involves the use of re-grid carbon strips, which are anchored into the wall and then riveted across the span of the ceiling at spaced intervals.

The re-grid carbon strips offer several key benefits:

Enhanced Strength: The carbon strips provide additional tensile strength to the RAAC structure, helping to counteract the effects of cracking and spalling.

Corrosion Resistance: Unlike steel reinforcement, carbon strips are not susceptible to corrosion, ensuring long-term durability of the repair solution.

Lightweight and Non-Invasive: The re-grid carbon strips are lightweight and can be installed with minimal disruption to the existing structure, making the repair process efficient and cost-effective.

Versatile Application: Our solution can be tailored to the specific needs of each RAAC structure, ensuring optimal results for every project.
