On this page | Introducing our structural timber repairs services using the Rotafix system, including carbon fibre plate reinforcement - with links to photos, project descriptions and technical information.
The header photo shows a rotted timber beam end that was uncovered after a casing was removed. Following repairs to the timber beam the temporary steel supports were removed!
The Rotafix Structural Timber Repair Systems
We use the Rotafix Resiwood Systems to achieve Low Disturbance Structural Restoration of Timbers. The method involves cutting out decayed timber and replacing this with reinforced resin.

The systems may also be used to increase the strength of existing overloaded structural timbers.

The header photo shows a “failed” timber beam supported on temporary steelwork. The timber beam was repaired in-situ and restored to full load bearing capability.
The project photos are here

Carbon Fibre Reinforcement
Working in conjunction with Rotafix, we are expanding the use of Carbon Fibre Plate Reinforcement as an alternative to the more conventional steel reinforcement.

Rotafix Ltd have included a case study of the work we carried out to reinforce a floor beam at Chetham’s Library in Manchester, originally constructed in 1421.

Please contact us to discuss your particular structural timber failure issues. We will be pleased to visit and offer remedial solutions.
