Discover the Power of Ram Jack Seismic Solutions for Safer Homes
Ram Jack's commitment to seismic safety is unmatched. We've invested significant time and resources in rigorous seismic testing of our piles. What's remarkable? We're the only manufacturer to perform full-scale tests in both dry sand and liquified soil for new construction and repairs. Our helical and driven piles stood strong at the University of California San Diego, proving their effectiveness in high seismic experiences. In simpler terms, our piles act as a damping system for structures, enhancing safety during earthquakes.
This groundbreaking testing has helped transform the industry landscape. The International Code Council (ICC) updated AC358 and Ram Jack’s ESR report (ESR-1854) recognizing Ram Jack's system compliance and capacities in high seismic regions (SDC D, E, and F). The City of LA rewrote its building code, allowing helical piles for new construction and repairs, setting a precedent for other regions. This shift opens up seismic retrofit opportunities for homeowners in high seismic areas.
