The I-Beam PowerBrace
Simple, Effective Solution for Repairing Bowed Walls
The patented PowerBrace™ System was specially-designed and manufactured by the structural engineers at Foundation SupportWorks. The beam is made from strong, corrosion-resistant materials and it will be ideal for a basement environment. These beams can easily be installed and will be attached securely to your bowing walls with steel brackets that aren't going to bend, break, or warp. The beam is also attached to the floor as well as the floor joists. Over time, the beam will be able to stabilize your wall and eventually improve it to its original state. The system is designed to continuously tighten over time during the dry season to help strengthen your wall and get it back into an upright position.
Protected from Corrosion
The materials used with this basement wall system are designed to never rust. They are coated with a zinc material which is in accordance with the ASTM standards for these kinds of coatings on steel materials, such as I-beams. This product is unlike all other types of similar products on the market today because of this unique coating. Most other beams or supports are installed without any king of coating. Over time, this can cause the beam to rust and corrode, thus making it much less stable and strong.
