Rapid piers to fit your job Featured

The Atlas Resistance® Pier is a manufactured, two-stage product designed specifically to produce structural support strength, by Hubbell -CHANCE®.

First, the Pier Pipe is driven to a firm bearing stratum; then the lift equipment is combined with a manifold system to lift the structure. The Atlas Resistance® Pier System procedure provides measured support strength. Atlas Resistance® Piers are spaced at adequate centers where each pier is driven to a suitable stratum and then tested to a force greater than required to lift the structure. This procedure effectively load tests each pier prior to lift and provides a measured Factor of Safety on each pier at lift.

Atlas Resistance® Piers have been used to restore and/or stabilize homes and commercial structures that had settled due to a wide variety of soil problems. Foundation settlement and movement can be caused by building on expansive clay, compressible or improperly compacted fill soils, or improper maintenance around foundations. Whatever the cause, settlement can destroy the value of structures and render them unsafe.

The Helical Pulldown Micropile (HPM) is used to form a grout column around the shaft of a standard helical anchor/pile. The installation process can employ grout only (see Uncased Helical Pulldown Micropile) or grout in combination with either steel or PVC casing (see Cased Helical Pulldown Micropile).

Over 90 years of research, development and testing have advanced Chance's Instant Foundation® System to its present mature stage. Compared to traditional methods, the Instant Foundation System offers attractive benefits in the conservation of labor, materials, equipment and, especially, time.
