Helical piers provide cost-effective stability in rainy conditions

This year, 2020, has been one of the wettest on record in many parts of the US, presenting a challenge for architects, engineers, and builders who already know how disruptive wet weather and poor soils can be for structural stability.

Wet weather and poor soils can be a cause for concern around structural stability but Cantsink can help with its helical piles

The recent relentless rain has created other challenges, too, such as future settlement issues, unless properly addressed and reinforced from the beginning.

Cantsink, a manufacturer of steel helical piers and piles, can provide an easy and elegant method for creating permanent stability without delays, even in rainy weather. Tested and certified to meet the highest standards for pier performance, Cantsink's products will stand the test of time.

Manufactured from 100 per cent recycled US steel, Cantsink has a range of products for all types of applications, soils, and weather conditions.

Cantsink helical piers and piles are fabricated in the company's net-zero-energy facility in Metro Atlanta. Company engineers are available to consult with project engineers to offer support in selecting the right product and most effective design. The products can provide permanent support for homes, commercial buildings, utility poles, equipment pads, decks, porches, and other structural assets. They also can provide support and reinforcement for retaining walls and temporary shoring needs.

The International Code Council, an independent, member-focused association that developed performance standards for building products, has a code for helical piers and piles. Cantsink products have been tested and certified to meet these standards.

Cantsink's helical piers and piles are manufactured with the company's patented helix, a process that creates stronger support than other products on the market and produces less waste during fabrication.
