Roman arches turn curly

HeliBars were used to strengthen a series of intricate, shallow brick arches along the southern face of this newly constructed building in Curl Curl, Sydney.

Here, the project architects were keen to ensure that the Roman-style brickwork arches possess sufficient strength to carry the loadings to be generated through the extension of an elevated concrete pathway above.

To lend additional strength to the natural arching of the brick rings, parallel lengths of 6mm diameter HeliBar were bedded into the brick course running directly over the peak of each arch. Shorter lengths of 8mm HeliBar were bonded vertically into the brick rings themselves to provide further support.
