Benefits of Push Piles
Push piles, or push piers, are a type of pier system designed with high-strength round steel tubes and a load transfer bracket (retrofit foundation repair bracket) used to stabilize sinking or settling foundations. The piers are pushed into the ground using a hydraulic ram until they reach load-bearing strata, transferring the weight of the structure to the stable soil. Used exclusively for retrofit applications, push pier systems are a viable option for tight installation spaces and heavier structures in need of deep foundation systems in Montana
Push Pile Applications
Though similar to helical piles, there are specific construction projects that push piles that are used exclusively for. Because they use the structure’s counterweight to hydraulically drive down into competent soils, push piers are only used for buildings that are heavy enough to achieve enough resistance to either stabilize the load or lift it. Structures that push piles work for include:
- Multi-story buildings
- Heavy brick buildings
- Large commercial structures
- Structures with reinforced concrete footings
