STABLWALL: STRENGTHENING YOUR STRUCTURE, PROTECTING YOUR FUTURE.
We use StablWall which consists of carbon fiber sheets that are installed with specially engineered bonding adhesives. StablWall carbon fiber is made from thousands of strands of fiber, all running in the same direction.
Once adhered with the wall or structure, it becomes one through an intense chemical reaction that makes the finished product 10x stronger than steel, and 5x stronger than other carbon fiber products on the market. More fiber and more bonding only mean more strength- that’s why StablWall has the largest footprint on the market.
