The hi-fin design on our Crack Stitching makes the Thor Helical Remedial Crack Stitching products ideal for grouting into mortar beds to retrospectively reinforce distressed masonry and to control cracking by distributing forces back into the structure. The various Thor Helical Remedial sections are directly proportionate to one another, providing opportunity for cross correlation of performance characteristics to be used in specification design.
