Uretek used their patented resin injection system to successfully re-level office buildings in Sydney to bring them back to their original position.
Four of these office stairwell towers at Huntingwood in Sydney had rotated outwards from the main building, moving by as much as 60mm at the top.
Uretek’s injections of expanding structural resins underneath the furthest-out base sections brought the towers back into correct position in just two days.
Relevelling buildings using conventional techniques can be difficult, messy and time-consuming. Uretek’s expanding resin injection method on the other hand, is a quick process, does not involve excavation or mess and does not require the building’s occupants to temporarily move out.
Uretek carries out building relevelling work from outside the building. The resin injection is done through small, 16mm diameter holes or 12mm tubes. Even smaller 6mm tubes can be used in slab-lifting, so that the penetrations are not visible in inside environments, especially with carpet, parquetry or ceramic tile floors.
Uretek’s expanding resins raise building footings and floors back to their correct levels with the results being seen in reduced wall cracks as well as functional windows and doors.
Uretek’s expanding resin technology is ideal for relevelling offices, homes, factories and warehouses among others.
