Niles Expanded Metals Press Piers Retrofit
Four structural concrete piers damaged through years of constant impact of 100,000 lb. press manufacturing. After removing the concrete piers, this retrofit required heavy #10 vertical reinforcing bars rock drilled minimum 12” depth and installed into remaining base foundation. It is mandatory all rebar drilled holes to be washed and cleaned out and epoxy applied for all new connections. These very detailed steps are to take place before forming new concrete piers. This procedure will assure the proper connection of new piers onto existing base foundation that will take the repetitive loads of the heavy press manufacturing weights for many years.
