Crack Stitching Project

Construction – Solid 225mm brick wall

Remedial action

Crack stitches are usually installed in every third or fourth joint (or as specified by engineer) as shown on the photo above. They are generally 1m long (ie to extend 500mm either sided of the crack) and, in the case of the Joint Remedial Anchor system, are installed 50mm into the joint.
