A bowing wall or a wall with cracks in it is no joke. It is crucial that homeowners are proactive when it comes to dealing with this problem.The patented wall anchors are designed to stabilize cracked and bowing foundation walls. Wall plate anchors secure basement and retaining walls that are bowing, leaning or cracking due to too much outside soil pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is the result of water buildup in the soil surrounding your home, often due to poor drainage or clogged gutters. Once the pressure has exceeded the original design strength of the wall, cracks will appear followed by leaning or bowing walls, making wall anchors or other foundation repair necessary.
Wall anchors are used to fix bowing walls. The plate anchors consist of an interior wall plate, an outside anchor and a high quality strength rod tying them together. This unique design has made our wall plate anchor the number one most reliable wall anchors, and it is made in the USA.
The inside wall plate is fabricated from hot-rolled steel and measures 12″ X 26″. The wall plate has two embossed reinforcing ribs for additional stiffness, plus a 4″ square washer that is included for added strength.
The ground plate anchor is fabricated from two high strength plates, has four reinforcing ribs and four cleats providing approximately 430 square inches of soil bearing surface. The wall plate and plate anchor are connected by a 3/4″ diameter continuously threaded steel tie rod and secured with nuts. The plate anchor assembly is hot dipped galvanized for protection against corrosion for many years of reliable service and support.
The patented plate anchors available from Quality Foundation are the most economical method for providing supplemental lateral force to help stabilize cracking and bowing walls affected by hydrostatic pressure. The installation is relatively quick, uses handheld equipment and requires minimal excavation or disturbance to the yard.
