PatchGuard Plus Connect™ Galvanic Anode™ for High Rise buildings
DuoGuard Australia Products used:
595 Collins Street is a major building located in the CBD of Melbourne – Victoria and houses the Births, Deaths and Marriages Records Offices. Although only localised deterioration was visibly evident, the potential for major, widespread corrosion issues was considered high, particularly along the in situ concrete false joints.
The engineer, Infracorr Consulting, selected the PatchGuard Plus Connect Galvanic Anode™ corrosion control treatment, as it provided a low-disruption option for preventative maintenance along these joints. Unlike other galvanic anodes which require breakouts, the PatchGuard Plus connect system could be installed in discrete core holes, minimising the work required to protect the structure.
