Installing I-Beam System for horizontal movement

I-Beam Restraint

DC Solutions's I-Beam Restraint System restores your basement wall's alignment and is a less expensive option to combat the effects of hydrostatic pressure.

We install I-Beam Restraints when lateral movement has been identified. 4" x 13lb I-Beams are installed vertically on the basement wall. An engineered bottom steel quick clip is placed at the base of the beam and secured to the floor with two 3/8" x 4" steel drive in bolts. A 4" x 4" treated beam is then installed in front of the I-beam between the existing floor joists and secured with 3/8" lag bolts. Matching sister joists are installed on either side of header to allow the structure of the home to stabilize the wall and prevent any further inward lateral movement.
