How Steel Piers work and the advantages

This Pier is the best method of hydraulic pushed piers. This pier works well in areas where the bedrock or bearing strata is 25 ft. or less. This pier has a friction reducer tip which allows the double wall steel pipe to be driven to the point of bedrock or the load bearing strata. This pier is driven directly under the beam which allows the load to be directly on the friction bearing plate. This pier is easy to re-adjust if needed unlike a drilled pier.

This is the most commonly used method today. The pilings are 6″ diameter and 12″ long. They are manufactured with high strength concrete at 10,000 psi so there is no cure time once installed. The install time is fast. Once the holes are dug the cylinders are hydraulically driven into the ground using the base of the foundation.
