Paratec – Parapet Wall Strengthening
CINTEC Canada, a structural masonry retrofit strengthening, repair and preservation company, offers Paratec (PARApet TEChniques), a highly versatile method of internal structural reinforcement that is tailored to meet the specific requirements of masonry parapet and retaining walls. The Paratec system strengthens low parapet masonry walls, while remaining sensitive to the original architecture and without narrowing roadways or rebuilding the wall. This new system is a targeted approach to solving problems associated with older masonry structures that are subject to wind loading, seismic movement, vehicular impact and foundation subsidence.
