Lateral Restraints from Thor Helical Remedial
Lateral restraints are wall ties used for restraining bulging walls.
Lateral restraints are fitted from outside the property with a minimum of disturbance - in most cases just lift a few floorboards to determine the position of the joists and to ensure wires or pipes that may be hidden are avoided during tie installation.
Each of our Lateral restraints wall ties have a drill like leading end for cutting into softwood. Using a drill, simply wind the lateral restraint ties into the timbers and resin fix the masonry end.
