2. Surface preparation

Dust, dirt, and loose debris are removed from the wall surface to ensure a strong bond between the strap and the foundation wall. Furthermore, marking the strap installation points accurately is essential for proper strap alignment and optimum load distribution.

5. Final inspection

Once the installation is complete, a final assessment will be conducted to ensure that everything has been installed to engineering specifications. Checking for proper strap alignment, sufficient epoxy coverage, and correct anchor placement.
