Laminated Wood Beam Repair
Owner: Reliable Chevrolet (Tulsa,OK)
System: Epoxy Injection & FRP/Carbon
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.
