the Residential Construction Industry
As industry innovators, the Surefoot “all-in-one” hybrid concrete free footing can be found supporting residential homes, decks and commercial housing developments worldwide. A cost-effective alternative to traditional foundations including screw piles and concrete footings, the Surefoot system reduces the risk of concrete cracking often associated with subgrade settlements, shrinkage and thermal contraction. Surefoot is suitable for a varied selection of soil types as determined by both geographical and climatic range, including “reactive soil” which is often difficult to navigate.
Reinforcing the Retaining Wall
Retaining walls are typically built to sustain a significant lateral soil pressure and may be curved, short or even tall. The Surefoot Pile Cap S250 forms a secure steel footing that connects the structure to the ground with the ability to handle sizeable bending moment loads and differing site soil conditions. Neither a shallow nor deep structure, the Surefoot system is classed as a hybrid foundation system that has eclipsed the use of both screw piers and bored piers.
