What are Solid Epoxy Resin Repairs

The damaged part of the timber end, or centre section, is replaced by a poured Structural Epoxy Resin, inside which a number of carefully specified rods called 'shear connectors', made of either steel or epoxy/glass, are embedded. The pour is contained in a 'shutter' box, which can be waxed for subsequent removal or can be a permanent part of the repair.

Solid Resin Repair Methods

TYPE A - the waxed wooden or plastic shutter box is removed after the resin has set hard. The waxing prevents the resin from bonding with the wooden or plastic box.

TYPE B - the shutter boards, or the shell of the original beam, form a permanent part of the repair and may be decorative
