Due to recent fires and loss of life in refurbished buildings, Cintec has been fully aware of the danger of fire and has always produced fire resistant remedial anchors and reinforcement.

 

What Is It?
As concerns over fire safety spread through the country, Prime Minister Theresa May ordered a public inquiry. As stated in the final report of the review of the building regulations and fire safety,  England is by no means alone in needing to improve building safety, as building regulations are a global concern.

Why Is It Important?
Under the terms of the EC Construction Products Directive, resistance to fire is one of the essential requirements for which performance tests are required.

What are the Applications?
Cintec anchors are the cementitious fire-resistant alternative to resin anchors. Since Cintec’s anchors are based on reliable restoration materials, cementitious grout, and stainless steel, they easily provided the elusive fire rating typically absent in other systems.

Cintec International working in conjunction with Arup have saved high-rise flats in Southwark from costly demolition and re-cladding with brickwork. The 1970’s built flats have a reinforced concrete frame with a concrete nib projecting at each floor level upon which the external brickwork is seated. Over the years the concrete nib had deteriorated to a point at which there was the real likelyhood of it detaching along with the brickwork.

The selected repair option of using the Cintec Corbel anchor was chosen for its serviceability and proven durability along with economical cost. This meant that the brickwork did not require replacing on a new concrete nib or steelwork thereby saving an enormous length of time and cost.
