Beam & Plate

AugustThe traditional method of beam placement is to drill, install the beam in an open hole and place slurry or sand into the opening. Sand needs to be jetted for a secure beam placement. However, the more economical model, especially if the ground is raveling or caving, is to vibrate a beam directly into the ground for a secure shoring system. If the ground is too hard to vibrate directly, pre-drilling a smaller hole than the outside dimensions of the HP or wide flange beam is employed. Note: the use of boxes is not a shoring system, it's only for worker safety and does not assure that the adjoining ground does not move.
