Effective wall-to-floor/roof connections significantly improves the global earthquake behaviour of masonry buildings. External anchor plates (aka pattress plates) that connect to the internal floor/roof structure is the most robust and cost-effective solution.

PYTHON MASONRY RETROFIT PLATES matured from our passion on the conservation and earthquake protection of existing buildings as valuable and concrete memory of our history and of our forefathers. PYTHON MASONRY RETROFIT PLATES bring our people to experience the tradition of old European buildings where the use of anchor plates withstood the test of time and of multiple earthquakes. We revisited such tradition with designs that best fit our New-World existing buildings.
