As Postech dealers, we are often asked, “what do you mean by THE MOST SOLID AND STABLE PILE?” Well, that’s a great question!
The quick answer would be... Innovation meets the highest level of quality control.
Postech is the only steel pile manufacturer (I’m aware of) which procures its cold-rolled steel from a single mill; the result is 100% consistency and quality.
Postech is the only steel pile manufacturer willing to invest a sizable chunk of change to develop a unique polyurethane foam blend that won’t separate from steel or galvanization and that stands up to moisture; this revolutionary system ensure that the inside of the post maintains a temperature that will prevent ice or frost build up at the base of the post.
Postech galvanizes each pile to maximize life; our galvanized coating is guaranteed to last a minimum of 75 years. If the galvanization were to ever wear, don’t worry as our steel is guaranteed for a minimum of 125 years.
Another point worth mentioning is that you can have the best designed pile around (which we do) but if it isn’t properly installed, it can still fail; that’s why at Postech our certified installers install our steel piles according to on-site torque reading. We have engineered charts which guarantee our piles’ capacities according to the torque we achieve, therefore your installation is guaranteed to support the required weight. Your engineer will smile when noting that the figures on our torque charts include a safety factor of 2.1 to 3!
If the above information still leaves you skeptical, we encourage you to check out the approval report we have received by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC 13102-R). The CCMC is a third party which verifies technical evaluation data from recognized engineering firms to confirm that products and their performance meet the requirements prescribed in the National Building Code (NBC 2005).
Still seeking peace of mind? With our CCMC report, Postech’s steel piles and accessories are insured by the CMHC for a minimum of 5 years.
If you want nothing but the best to support your dream building project, you need to look no further than a Postech Metal Foundation where you get a best-in-class foundation at a price that just might widen that smile.
