Pieresearch , a long time industry leader in the manufacture and distribution of rebar-reinforcing alignment tools for the deep foundations and earth retention industries announces a new, easily navigable website for all parties involved in the design and construction of geotechnical elements. The site not only features the company’s product line, but also provides the viewer with a wide range of “How To” information on deep foundation and earth retention systems, and how alignment tools assist designers and constructors in providing quality end results. Alignment tools for drilled shafts, micropiles, augercast piles, soil nails, and anchored earth retention installation are described in graphic and technically illustrated formats. A “Quantity Calculator” is integrated into the text so that one can calculate exact quantities of all types of alignment aids including rebar cage spacers, single bar reinforcing, bottom boosters, as well as Unibar Centralizers for soil nails and anchors for every job.
Pieresearch’s widely acclaimed “Drilled Shaft Design and Construction” instructional video is featured in a downloadable format. Timely, technical and management-focused articles by leading industry experts are presented in a special “Dig Deeper” section. Complete Specifications Kits for every application are offered on order to take the guesswork out of the specification process. Useful explanations of deep foundation and earth retention system concepts are provided. If you are a structural engineer, foundation or earth retention designer, constructor, specifier, fabricator, detailer, or end-user you will find this new website to be a unique and extremely valuable resource.
