››Depths in wet soils cannot exceed 12 to 15 feet.

››Buckling could occur due to the disjointed design of system.

››Pile is not directly under the grade beam, it is offset and at an angle causing stress and failure.

››According to the Practical Foundation Engineering Handbook “The claims for this method include such statements as the weight of the building locks the sections of the pilings together with friction. And the soil through which the pilings have been driven, and which was compacted by the driving process, firmy locks the pilings in vertical position. In the absence of strong proof, either allegation would seem most suspect.”

››Interior piles are limited to a ceiling height of 8 feet and the slab must be broken out.

Some Disadvantages of Other Systems

›According › to the Practical Foundation Engineering Handbook “An attempt to improve the alignment problem has been introduced. This involves threading the cylinders on a post tension cable. Once the desired numbers of cylinders are placed, the cable is tensioned, and it is hoped that it will both ensure alignment and develop some tension resistance within the column. The benefits actually realized from this approach are most questionable. The cable might improve the piling’s resistance to tensile forces but would offer little in resistance to lateral stress. Further the cable might tend to force the cylinders into closer and tighter contact but not likely to improve overall alignment.” ››In New Orleans wet conditions, the epoxy or glue used to connect the cable to the cylinders is rendered ineffective. ››If a mechanical anchor is used, any slack or tension on the cable during the life of the pile renders the entire pile disjointed.

A Unique Locking System ››The PermaLock™ cylinders are designed to lock together, therefore ensuring that every cylinder is secure and becomes one continuous rigid concrete piling. ››With the threading and locking of each› PermaLock™ cylinder there is no lateral movement during or after installation due to expansive soils, soil consolidation, sloping sites, ground pressure or roots of trees. ››Straightness, true vertical alignment and concentric loading offered by Permalock™ resists buckling of the supporting piles that can occur with other systems. ››It is recommended that pile lengths should be limited to 75 times their diameter. * In South Louisiana, where depths over 50 feet are sometimes necessary, the PermaLock™ system satisfies this recommendation.

Permalock™ has been used by FEMA, HUD, FHA, VA, National Flood Insurance Program, Parishes HMGP, State OCD-DRU, St Tammany Emergency Management Program, as well as countless other satisfied homeowners.

Pilings are driven deep into the ground to support the house. However, the depth of the soil can vary on the same site preventing some pilings from reaching the point of refusal.

Over time the weight of the house can cause the house to sink. Piling failure occurs because they are not driven deep enough. This can cause the house to tilt causing structural damage to the foundation.

Local building codes require minimum piling depths for certain areas. In some cases pilings need to go deeper than the code requires.

Davie Shoring then comes in and excavates beneath the slab and cuts off the top of the piling. We attach a PermaLock™ block using our threaded PermaLock™ System. The proper amount of hydraulic pressure is applied to press the block and piling deep into the ground. This process is repeated until the piling reaches refusal.
