Laminated Wood Beam Repair

Owner: Reliable Chevrolet (Tulsa,OK)

System: Epoxy Injection & FRP/Carbon

Completed: 2000

Description:

During the remodel of this auto dealership, the structural integrity of 6 laminated wood beams were questioned.  An architect and a structural engineer consulted us about the possibility of a carbon-fiber strengthening procedure. The delamination cracks were epoxy pressure injected and the bottom 25” of the wood beam was wrapped with one layer of carbon-fiber.  A coating was applied upon completion for aesthetics.
