Beaming Around a Bow Window
This video shows the basic method of beaming around a bow window using Bar Flex. Beaming is used to reinforce masonry where it is cracking, and can be used to hold back a bow window.
Beaming is carried out by raking out a mortar joint, and applying Bar Flex reinforcement bar into Bond Flex cementitious grout. The slot can then be repointed, resulting in a hidden fixing.
