Lateral Restraints are manufactured from 304 Austenitic Stainless Steel rods, 8mm in diameter, designed to restrain the whole of the brick outer structure to the floor joists.
Lateral Restraints can be fitted from outside the property with a minimum of disturbance in most cases just a lifting of the floorboards to determine the position of the joists.
Any joist or beam end in direct contact with a wet wall will eventually succumb to fungal attack and decay (rot) thus loosing its strength, it may even break. Should this happen the problem of replacement is expensive and time consuming.
Bower Beams can be used to effect a quick, cheap and easy but secure and long lasting replacement.
Independent tests have shown that the Bower Beam is capable of withstanding loads in excess of the design loads of the wooden joists they are supporting which will in turn, be isolated from the source of the dampness and further risk.
