Carbon fibre reinforced polymer plating is used to strengthen weakened or vulnerable structures. It provides a non-corrosive, versatile solution which can be used effectively in any number of environments. 

Our quality-assured techniques ensure that strengthening is carried out in accordance with manufacturers’ recommendations, without detracting from the original design or aesthetic of the structure, meaning it is an ideal solution for listed or heritage projects. 

The use of carbon fibre mesh sheeting allows for greater flexibility in the design of strengthening schemes. Flexible materials facilitate the easy formation of complex shapes - the low density nature of the composites means that the resulting repair materials do not corrode and are instead strong and light. The use of this technique removes the need to replace whole structural elements and provide fast effective solutions.
