Push Piers

Push Piers are hydraulically driven sections of pipe that can be driven through unstable soil into load-bearing strata. Available in 2 7/8″ and 3 1/2″ shaft diameters, and are either 18″ or 36″ long. Push Piers can be galvanized or bare steel depending upon your requirements. The system is recommended when bedrock or load-bearing strata is close to the top soil. If you must penetrate layers of soil before loading bearing soil can be reached, we recommend using helical piers. Push Piers can be installed with lightweight portable equipment when clearance issues prevent heavy duty equipment from being used.
