Tyfo® FRP Seismic to Floor Diaphragm Strengthening


Saint Patricks College, Wellington

In May 2013, Concrete Solutions®completed a floor strengthening. Strengthening of the floor diaphragm was required due to a slab thickness of 50mm and lack of steel tying into a supporting beam. Steel “K” frames were installed on the underside at each end of the floor slab with Tyfo® SEH-51A applied on the top side to improve load capacity. Special care was required as all works were carried out during normal school hours with little to no disruption to the surrounding classes.
