P A G E 9 February 2016 Program Recap: Use of Lateral Restraint Anchors for Stabilization of Multiwythe Masonry Walls Speaker Bio: Alan Pettingale is the president and founder of Specialized Masonry Restoration. He has thirty years of professional experience in masonry repair systems, site-assessment surveys, forensic testing and implementing a wide range of remedial strategies for masonry stabilization. Alan s expertise is in the application of masonry restoration for schools, churches, colleges, historical, residential and commercial buildings in the US and England. Presentation Summary: Anchor systems in masonry walls have been used for centuries, with the earliest dating back to the Romans and Greeks who used wrought iron to supplement conventional masonry. Other cultures and countries have used variations of metal anchors and straps in the construction of masonry, as well as for retrofit or repair applications to supplement and strengthen masonry systems after natural disasters such as earthquakes. There are numerous modern applications where lateral restraint anchors can be utilized to remediate masonry walls that are in service to accommodate additional applied forces or to strengthen masonry weakened by deterioration or excessive load. Often, lateral restraint anchors can utilize the existing interior framing of a building to re-establish a point of support at an intermediate height of the wall. This is accomplished through a combination of fasteners or anchors that secure straps, rods, or other tension elements to the masonry wall to resist lateral displacement. Many of these applications merge the basic premises of historic methods with techniques and modern materials of the twentieth century to provide a cost effective, aesthetically appealing, and preservation oriented method for remediating masonry. This merger of old and new techniques allows us to stabilize historic walls for modern service conditions allowing them to continue serving their intended function.
