History of Innovation & Technology with HB Adjustable Joint Reinforcements
Hohmann & Barnard, a leader in adjustable reinforcements for over 81 years, provides insights on how the development of adjustable joint reinforcements solved many problems from “standard joint reinforcement across multi-wythe walls”.
For example, prior to adjustable joint reinforcements, the “joint reinforcement in the interior wall would project out of the all for weeks or months” creating not only a safety hazard for construction crews, but the “wire would often get disfigured” which could have the harmful affect of “cracking its protective zinc coating”. The resulting impact of undermine the optimal structural integrity of the exterior and interior walls.
Hohmann & Barnard played a substantial role in making the ‘Hook-and-Eye’ adjustable reinforcement into an industry standard that solved the problem of joint reinforcements, and enabled the “independent construction of interior & exterior walls”.
Since its inception, HB has continued a culture of innovation that has resulted in ever-improved adjustable joint reinforcements including the Db’l Look-Lok system that has become today’s industry standard.
The Hohmann & Barnard ‘loop’ design has resulted in several performance advantages including:
- “In-plane vertical and horizontal movement of masonry wythes” which results in restraint of both movement and tension.
- Loops are welded in a closed position, which increases tolerance and structural integrity.
- “100% protection against separation of wire tie from reinforcement”.
