CINTEC America Inc. now offers Paratec (PARApet TEChniques), a highly versatile method of internal structural reinforcement that is tailored to meet the specific requirements of masonry parapet and retaining walls. The Paratec system strengthens low parapet masonry walls - such as those found on roofs or balconies, or a low wall that is part of a bridge or an embankment - while remaining sensitive to the original architecture and without narrowing roadways or rebuilding the wall. This new system is a targeted approach to solving problems associated with older masonry structures that are subject to wind loading, seismic movement, vehicular impact and foundation subsidence. Working in conjunction with both software specialists and consulting engineers, the Paratec system utilizes advanced dynamic software incorporating a discrete element analysis technique that enables the behavior of parapet walls to be accurately predicted under various circumstances.
