Over 20 Years
of Timber-Resin Splice Manufacturing by 2015
Yes, we are celebrating over
20 years of continuous manufacture of the Patented Timber-Resin Splice.
We have made over 10,000 units in that time and our Timber Repair Kits
are to be found in thousands of buildings throughout the UK.
We machine and laminate all
the timbers and fit the connection bars in our own Workshops. We can
make you a beam end or mid section repair unit in virtually any size
and any species of timber.
Moore - who is he? Where did he start?
the Managing Partner of Property Repair Systems, started the Company
in 1997, having worked since graduation from Leeds University (B.A.Hons.)
for GKN in Engineering and Organisation and Methods, then qualified
as a Dampness and Timber Surveyor, spending over 30 years in the Damp
Proofing and Timber Preserving Industry, both as a Contractor and as
Sales Development Manager for a National Chemical Formulator, Remtox
Chemicals, which was a part of the Laporte Group of Companies. He then
worked for a major UK Epoxy Resins Manufacturer, Rotafix Resins, which
directly led to his Invention of the Timber-Resin Splice repair system
for structural timbers in buildings. He is an Inventor, engineer, Technical
Author and qualified Dampness and Timber Building Surveyor.
Why did David Moore
invent the Timber Resin Splice (TRS)?
To replace decayed timber
with large amounts of resin has two major disadvantages. The first is
cost large volumes of resin are relatively expensive. And second,
appearance in historic buildings large lumps of plastic
are out of place and this is both unattractive and unacceptable to many
clients and Heritage bodies..
Following many years in the
Chemical and Resins Industry and also in working with decaying and historic
buildings, David Moore realised that a far better solution on both counts
was to replace the missing wood with matching wood and use the resin,
combined with invisible steel reinforcing rods, just for load transfer
and connection - and thus the 'Timber-Resin Splice ' was born.
The new concept - pre-manufacture
a new piece of replacement timber to exactly replace the missing part,
fitted with bars or slots ready for connection and the whole thing is
supplied as a 'kit'.

Now any Contractor can repair
any beam or joists in timber to exceed the original strength, and offer
a truly neat, cosmetic finish.
