Channel Slab Pile CAP Assemblies by Hubbell

Concrete brackets from CHANCE, Hubbell are used for channel slab pile cap assemblies

Using the CHANCE® Wireless Torque Indicator from Hubbell, you can install screw anchors to a pre-determined torque value which gives a positive indication of anchor holding capacity in any soil type. This tool also helps your crew avoid excessive torsional loading which could cause damage to the anchor and/or anchor tools during installation.

Hubbell Power Systems, Inc. has launched this assembly in order to raise the concrete slab edge or non-load bearing wall using a screw lift system.

Rapid piers to fit your job

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.
