Lateral Restraint Tie Installations throughout South East England

Many structural problems within older properties are related to lateral movement within the wall construction – often referred to as ‘bulging’ or ‘deflection’. However, lateral movement can also occur within more modern constructions. Here at CavityTech Systems Ltd, our surveyors have a vast amount of experience and expertise in all types of building construction. This enables us to provide a full written detailed repair solution using lateral restraint ties, no matter the age or style of your property.

Causes of Lateral Movement in Buildings

The occurrence of lateral movement is often the result of a combination of several weak points or defects within a structure. Contributing factors could include structural overloading, poor interconnection with internal wall and floors, or poor elevation construction.
