Double Wall Single Steel Pier
Steel piers are usually pressed along the outside edge of the foundation and not directly under it like concrete piers. Instead a bracket is attached to the top segment of the pier that reaches under the foundation in order to provide support.
HOW IT WORKS
- Piers will usually reach greater depths than concrete piers because steel is smooth This method utilizes interlocking steel segments instead of concrete segments.
- Steel and its diameter is smaller so it does not generate surface friction as quickly as pressed concrete piers. In some instances a ring is attached at the bottom of the first.
- This method utilizes interlocking steel segments instead of concrete segments. Steel pier that is slightly larger than the piers themselves. This ring cuts a larger opening creating even less surface friction allowing penetration to greater depths.
