What is StrongHold™ Carbon Fiber?

HJ3 Composite Technologies provides a comprehensive line of strengthening products that can be used to protect residential and commercial structures against bowing or buckling walls. We distribute their StrongHold Bowing Wall Repair and Strengthening System because it’s the blueprint for all other carbon fiber wall support systems. In 1997, HJ3 patented the very first carbon fiber system to strengthen basement walls. Since then, more than 100 StrongHold installers across the nation have used their system to strengthen well over 25,000 homes. The system is designed to strengthen concrete or masonry walls to prevent inward bowing that may be caused by dynamic forces, excess moisture, earthquakes, temperature variations, and other environmental disruptions.

Fast, effective installation of this product requires no heavy equipment, no excavation, and no mess. Our HJ3 carbon fiber installation teams in Richmond are typically able to start and finish the project in just a single day’s work! Instead of heavy steel I beams that take up room and make for an unsightly finish in a basement, carbon fiber straps provide adequate strength without being an eyesore to your customers.
