After years of helplessly witnessing structural failures in buildings as a result of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, plane and car crashes, and storm surges, I found a common thread that explains why these structural failures happen and also demonstrates where the progressive failures begin.
I resolved this by switching to a continuous-steel strapping reinforcing method that gave me the freedom to address all of the aspects of wind, seismic and collision forces inclusively.
By applying a continuous inverted net along the inner sides of a structure frame, I am able to conserve movement and momentum in the structure frame, reducing the impact and durational loads on the frame, which in turn makes the frame that much stronger. The continuous structural steel strapping net retains, versus contains, the structure frame, reinforces the three-point upper and lower structure frame body corners, and prevents the walls or panels from over-expanding or contracting.
This simple reinforcing installation method also reduces reinforcing workloads and materials. It also reduces construction costs, speeds up the structure-frame reinforcing installations, and it replaces many isolated reinforcing materials and products that break the budget of many construction projects.
