Fully concealed, in the vast majority of cases Helifix products avoid expensive and disruptive taking down and rebuilding. They provide secure, lasting connections in all forms of brick, blocks, concrete, stone and timber as well as traditional local building materials such as Devon Cob, Wytchert and Norfolk Clay Lump.

Using various combinations of Helifix ties, fixings and reinforcing bars virtually any situation can be dealt with so do not hesitate to call us if you have a particular problem which is not covered here.
