Fortress™ Carbon Strap Facts[/caption]Fortress has always been concerned with having the best composite performance. All strength in fiber composites is gained when the fibers are straight. Unidirectional fibers lay flat, eliminating flex when force is applied. The unidirectional method Fortress has developed creates a product twice as strong as products using woven carbon fibers. This Fortress propriety manufacturing process allows for a true unidirectional carbon product, which is the perfect tool to reinforce foundations.
The Fortress™ Strap warranty is fully transferable to future homeowners regardless of how many times the home is sold.
