SockFix is a mechanically grouted sock anchor system for stabilising damaged masonry. The system comprises of a grout-filled sock that combines with a threaded bar in a composite action which expands to form a strong chemical/mechanical bond with the substrate.
The SockFix system is used in heavy duty, high load applications such as stabilising rubble-filled walls, securing external walls to hollow concrete floor slabs, stitching cracked solid and multi-leaf walls and securing unstable parapet walls and arches.
SockFix provides an economical, rapidly installed and efficient means of restoring structural integrity, particularly in situations where high levels of performance are required in bending. Like all Helifix repair products, it is a non-disruptive, fully concealed system that retains the building’s original appearance.
