A better way to remove brick (how helical beaming saves time, labor & money)

Whether you are creating a new doorway, replacing window lintels, or repairing flashing, helical beaming is a method you may want to consider for its efficiency. This method eliminates tedious and cost-intensive alternatives, including shoring, needling, or removing whole sections of the wall.

Helical beaming allows the installation of larger pieces of flashing, thus eliminating unnecessary lap joints and reducing future water problems.

It also:

Strengthens walls

Helical beaming reinforces areas of masonry and produces composite brick beams. 

Is fully concealed

Repairs are virtually undetectable post-installation.

Saves labor

Helical beaming takes significantly less labor than alternatives such as needling, shoring or removing whole sections of the wall.

Helical beaming supports the weight above the window for an easier solution to lintel repair.

PROSOCO's anchor specialists and engineers support this method for its ability to circumvent more labor- and time-intensive alternatives, saving the building or wall instead of tearing it down.

Used in conjunction with SureGrout S, the PROSOCO Stitch-Tie Bar reinforces areas of masonry and produces composite brick beams, allowing the masonry to span over openings. In multi-wythe construction, the helical beaming can be further strengthened if installed on the interior and exterior wythes.

By using this system, one will be able to install larger pieces of flashing, thus eliminating unnecessary lap joints and reducing future water problems.
