Custom Solutions for Engineers & Contractors
A helical foundation (pile) is a factory manufactured steel foundation consisting of a central shaft with one or more helical-shaped bearing plates. The terms “foundation” or “pile” typically refer to a compression application. Helical piles are referred to as helical anchors when used in a tension application.
Ram Jack® manufactures helical piles and extensions in a wide array of shaft diameters (2 ⅜”, 2 ⅞”, 3 ½”, 4 ½”,5 ½”, 6 ⅝”, and 8 ½”.
We have the facility to design and fabricate special orders as well, meeting any shaft diameters your project calls for. All helical shafts and extensions are carbon steel with minimum yield strength of 65 ksi.
Quality Products You Can Depend On
All our helical pile components have a thermoplastic coating, which has been specifically designed to provide a long-lasting, tough coating. The thermoplastic coating meets the Acceptance Criteria for Corrosion Protection of Steel Foundation Systems Using Polymer (EAA) Coatings (AC228). The acceptance criterion was adopted by the International Code Council (ICC) in October 2003. The thermoplastic coating is environment-friendly and has a technical lifespan of 50 years.
Ram Jack offers New Construction Brackets, Boardwalk Brackets, Adjustable Deck Brackets, Side Load Brackets, Interior Slab Brackets, and brackets for various applications.
Support for Foundations of Existing Structures
Driven steel piles are sometimes referred to as push or resistance piles. They are used to underpin the foundation of an existing structure. The piles are pushed into the soil with hydraulic cylinders by using the weight of the structure as a reaction force. Each pile is installed individually, utilizing the maximum resistance of the structure as a reaction force.
Ram Jack® manufactures three different sizes of driven steel piles: 2 ⅜”, 2 ⅞” and 3 ½” diameters. We also have the facility to custom fabricate any size for special orders.
