Helical Anchor Testing

CHICAGO, IL – Helical anchor testing was done today at the Shrine of Christ the King. During the fa├žade masonry investigation, it was discovered that the metal anchors that hold up the exterior limestone are rusted. Helical anchors will be installed from the inside masonry to hold the limestone. Today the product representative was out to do strength testing on the masonry. This testing is to insure that the existing masonry construction has the strength needed to support the anchors and hold the limestone. The test results were positive.
