The Reinforcer Carbon Fiber Concrete Reinforcement
What Is The Reinforcer® foundation wall stabilization system ?The Reinforcer® composite system is a Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) made of carbon fibers in
an epoxy resin matrix specifically designed for strengthening and repair concrete and masonry walls and foundations.
How does The Reinforcer® work to keep basement walls from cracking?
When THE REINFORCER®, concrete reinforcement, is applied to foundation walls, it counteracts further wall buckling from outside pressure on the wall. Taking the tension force (or tensile load) that the basement wall cannot.
For every increase in pressure on the foundation wall, THE REINFORCER® supplies an equal and opposite resistant force making the wall stronger. It helps repair expanding, buckling, bowing, and cracking walls by using carbon fiber to strengthen the walls.

Benefits of The Reinforcer®
NO HEAVY EQUIPMENT
The Reinforcer® is a patented state-of-the-art system developed by professional engineers. A combination of space-age polymers and carbon fibers have been processed into a material that is virtually impossible to stretch. It is a perfect material to use to repair basement foundation walls to resist outside pressure that cause basement foundation cracks and wall buckling.
NO MESSY CONCRETE
You no longer need invasive measures (such as breaking through concrete floors or making structural changes to floor joists) to stabilize foundation walls. THE REINFORCER® foundation reinforcement is simply applied directly to existing walls. You no longer have to worry about the look of boxy, ugly steel beam reinforcement, which can intrude into your basement space. This makes basement finishing much easier by providing a smooth structure for the interior walls.
NO INVASIVE MEASURES
THE REINFORCER® carbon fiber repair brace has a tensile strength that has proven to be eight to ten times stronger than steel AND works on concrete block or poured concrete to secure and repair cracking, bowing or buckling foundation walls.
The Reinforcer Shield®
The Reinforcer Shield® system is a glass or carbon composite fiber FRP flexible sheet system. The carbon system is an excellent material for flexural, and shear strengthening. The glass system is an excellent material for strengthening for
The added benefit is that it is flexible and is capable of conforming to irregular shapes, such as circular or square columns.
