Parapet Wall Strengthening With Paratec
CINTEC America Inc.’s Paratec is a versatile method of internal structural reinforcement tailored to meet the specific requirements of masonry parapet and retaining walls. The Paratec system strengthens low parapet masonry walls, such as those found on roofs or balconies, or a low wall that is part of a bridge or an embankment. It is a targeted approach to solving problems associated with older masonry structures subject to wind loading, seismic movement, vehicular impact and foundation subsidence. The system uses software incorporating a technique that enables the behavior of parapet walls to be accurately predicted under various circumstances.
