ECP helical piers are ideal for applications where there is a need to resist a tension or compressive force or both.
Many times helical piers are the best solution for your foundation repair project due to one of the following factors:
ECP resistance slab piers are designed and engineered especially for structural slab support. These steel slab brackets are simply installed on top of ECP helical anchors or with an end-bearing pier to stabilize or lift a concrete slab due to failing soil conditions that are too weak to support the slab. The resistance slab piers can be mechanically or hydraulically used to lift settling slabs in much the same way that ECP underpinning brackets are used to support footing foundations.
The resistance slab piers are installed using a grid pattern. Installation is accomplished inside the structure so these piers install quickly due to their minimal set-up time making the process a more cost effective and time efficient solution.
