In-ground testing for anchors and piles
In-ground testing provides load and torque performance on each helical anchor and
geo pile installed. This is something we've rarely, if ever, seen providers of drilled
concrete piles and/or driven concrete piles do (and, here's a big question for anyone
using those other systems: how do you know if they -- really -- ever attain bearing
pressure if they're never tested? Hmmmmm . . . something every builder should ask
their supplier . . .).
Below is a series of photos detailing the thorough testing process every helical
anchor and geo pile goes through. Of special note is the fact that, in addition
to the general load-frame test shown, each individual component installed has its
own record of meeting requirements, as a certified technician observes that each
reaches specified bearing capacity. Again, something that isn't done with other
alternatives, and is a major technical benefit of our helical anchors and geo piles.
