Winn & Coales Acquires FX-70® Structural Piling Repair and Protection System
Winn & Coales International Ltd. has acquired the FX-70® Structural Piling Repair and Protection System from Simpson Strong-Tie. In 2022 Winn & Coales’ long-established SeaShield™ Systems will have provided 50 years of pile protection and rehabilitation systems for timber, steel, concrete piles, and marine structures. By adding the FX-70 system to the SeaShield range they are now able to offer clients a one-stop pile protection provider. Since its debut in 1970, the FX-70 system was the first to use a custom-made tongue-and-groove seamed fibreglass jacket with a high-strength, water-resistant repair grout. The system has extensive case histories for timber, steel, and concrete pile applications.
