Why Carbon Guard

Home / Why Carbon Guard

Originally developed for NASA and the U.S. Military for applications demanding extreme strength, carbon fiber is stronger than steel but not as stiff. However, carbon fiber is lightweight and easy-to-manage making it a simple to use, quickly installed solution for basement and foundation repair applications.

Do carbon fiber
straps work?

Yes. Carbon fibers are incredibly effective for structural foundation repairs. Our product can repair cracked, bowed, or buckling walls before the foundational damage worsens. With our products, you can prevent further damage to your foundation. 

Carbon fiber is very strong (e.g., 3000 MPa ultimate tensile strength, more than 10 times mild steel) but not too stiff (150 to 250 GPa, less than steel). Therefore, only a reasonable application of carbon fiber straps are needed to strengthen your home’s foundation.

What are the benefits of
carbon fiber straps?

  • Quick installation
  • Incredible strength
  • No maintenance
  • Low visibility
  • Low cost

What Are The Features Of Carbon Guard

Carbon fiber has been proven throughout multiple industries to be highly effective at structural reinforcement.

There is a thin wall application that makes the product non-intrusive. Since the straps are non-intrusive, you can easily paint over the straps and hide the repairs.

The tensile is stronger than steel. Unlike steel, our straps will not rust or deteriorate.

Our epoxy is superior to any other polymers on the market.

Don’t overpay for foundation repairs! Our carbon fiber straps are less expensive than professionally installed systems.

We manufacture commercial-grade carbon fiber, much stronger than the competition.
