the Managing Partner, started the Company in 1997, having worked since
graduation from Leeds University for GKN in Engineering, then qualified
as a Dampness and Timber Surveyor, spending over 20 years in the Damp
Proofing and Timber Preserving Industry, both as a Contractor and as
Sales Development Manager for a National Chemical Formulator. He then
worked for a major UK Epoxy Resins Manufacturer, which directly led
to his Invention of the Timber-Resin Splice repair system for structural
timbers in buildings.
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.
today manufactures all the 'Timber-Resin Splice' kits for the UK, some
several thousand being produced per annum. The product holds a current
