Is your project ballasted or ground penetrating? Wide flange, SmartPost, round post, helical? We can design anything for anywhere, no foundation is off-limits to our engineers. As part of our geotechnical design, we engineer the FlexRack and foundation to fit the installation site while providing the best balance-of-system costs. We are undaunted by a challenge, and we rise to it.
It’s standard procedure for us to provide a pull-test program for site-specific post options. Our geologist gets the most accurate information possible by analyzing the actual data from the pull test and using the data in accordance with the geo-tech report. In fact, we use our own propriety software to analyze the pull-test results. Why is this test important? The pull test authenticates possible design options to minimize the embedment depth. It also ensures appropriate length and thickness of the most efficient post. Again, this solid preparation leads to reduced costs and ultimately hitting the bottom line.
