REINFORCEKiT® BEAM

Composite repair for damaged beams

REINFORCEKiT® BEAM is a composite product, patented in partnership with the SNCF (French National Railway Company) that repairs and strengthens beams and poles.

Initially developed to reinforce catenary supports (HEA beams), the product can be used for any beam design.

Made of very high-performance materials (epoxy resin and Kevlar®), it has been designed for lasting 20 years minimum.

Since 2011 (and after 2 years of testings), more than 1000 supports have been renovated successfully thanks to this original product.
