Applied Technologies has partnered with Rhino Carbon Fiber to provide the strongest carbon fiber bowed basement wall repair system on the market. The Rhino system is the only carbon fiber system that fully secures the entire basement wall and stops further bowing. This is because only Rhino fully ties together structurally the top and bottom of the bowed wall. This stops bowing and the shear forces that occur on the bottom block.
Bowed Foundation Wall Carbon Fber
Here is what Waterproof! Magazine said in their article titled “Working With Carbon Fiber”.
“…Far stronger and less bulky than steel, carbon fiber is transforming a broad range of industries, and waterproofing is one of them… Rhino Carbon Fiber Wall Supports goes a step further. The Rhino system provides continuous carbon fiber strength from the foundation all the way to the house framing. Rhino is fastened above the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the footing with a massive carbon fiber stake.” Excerpt from Waterproof ! Magazine Fall 2010 issue.

What Causes Bowed
Soils become saturated with ground water. The soil swells and creates pressure against the foundation. Cracks are created. Over time these increase in size. Eventually the structural integrity of the wall is compromised. Once that happens, the wall begins to bow. If the wall is made of concrete block, this can even cause shearing at the top and bottom. The Rhino Carbon Fiber Wall System will stop this bowing.
Bowed Basement Wall Solutions
