A multi-purpose foundation, the Surefoot footing system is an innovative alternative in all construction applications where a concrete footing can be used. The Pile Cap S250 provides support of up to 110kN and can be erected in a short amount of time, eliminating downtime and excessive labour costs. It features a design capacity calculated by the working stress method. Using refined geotechnical data, containers can be erected quickly and securely, reducing the lack of productivity often associated with traditional forms of footings.
Offering cutting-edge steel footings that are suitable for all construction work in need of a foundation, the Surefoot concrete free footing system provides superior loading capabilities when compared to screw piles and other conventional footings such as bored and concrete piles. Both quick to install and dismantle, Surefoot footings are fully recyclable and, when required, can be returned to their raw state to produce more steel footings when needed. Providing optimal stability and minimal soil and substrate disruption, they are the foundation of choice for cyclone tie downs. Tested and certified in cyclonic prone areas, ensure your building project is optimally protected and built to withstand uplift, shear and environmentally challenging conditions. Surefoot footings can also be installed in all wind categories.
From concept to concrete slab
With an average installation time of around 10 minutes, the use of Surefoot Pile Cap S250 provides a sturdy foundation in which to pour a concrete slab, ensuring reduced downtime between construction stages. Effectively negotiating the impact of reactive soil issues when building homes, the concrete slab is suspended allowing the soil to move beneath without pressure to the slab.
When planning construction in collaboration with local government bodies, preparation is key. The construction of a public structure is heavily regulated and requires absolute precision. Not only are personal and public liabilities involved, but when children use the structure, it also needs to be secure and meet a range of regulatory requirements. The Pile Cap S250 will create a foundation that spreads over a greater surface area, achieving larger load capacities in a cost-effective, secure and time efficient manner.
Retaining walls are typically built to sustain a significant lateral soil pressure and may be a curved, short or even tall retaining wall. The Pile Cap S250 forms a steel footing that connects the structure to the ground with security and flexibility. It also has the ability to handle large bending moment loads and differing site soil conditions. Neither a shallow nor deep structure, Surefoot is a hybrid foundation system that has eclipsed the use of both screw piles and bored piles.
Residential Housing Structures
From large decking projects to modular residential homes, Surefoot Pile Cap S250 is superior to the more traditional foundation such as screw piers in cost-effectiveness, labour and time efficiency. Designed to adapt to undulating terrains and ground movements, this concrete free foundation system is ideal for construction sites with limited access and will negotiate various soil types, ensuring your housing project is supported by the fully recyclable, concrete free footing.
