For over a quarter of a century, Cintec has secured and reinforced historic and historical buildings, masonry bridges, monuments, railway structures, retaining walls and harbour walls throughout the world.

The patented Cintec reinforcement and anchoring system is straightforward: injecting a proprietary cementitious fluid grout into an anchor surrounded by a fabric sock, which has already been placed in an oversized drilled hole. The reinforcement system’s ingenuity lies in its versatility. Drawing on decades of experience and testing, Cintec’s designers can customize it to any specification.
