CarbonArmor has been used to support bridges, skyscrapers and bomb shelters to stabilize building foundations. The combination of high-strength epoxy resin and carbon fiber strap material is stronger than steel and will prevent further damage to these bowing walls. To provide a clean look and another layer of protection form humidity, Brightwall has been installed on top of the CarbonArmor straps. BrightWall is a 100% waterproof rigid plastic paneling for unfinished basement walls. It's durable, washable, and will not support the growth of mold or rot.
