STORM PROTECTION APPLICATIONS
The effects of normal erosion over time can alter the foundation of a structure in such a gradual manner that the damage often goes unnoticed for years. In areas in which frequent storms bring heavy rains and winds, however, damage can occur much more rapidly and result in the need for more costly and immediate repairs.
SLOPE STABILIZATION & COASTAL PROTECTION
Steel pile retaining wall systems are available to aid commercial organizations from across North America in their efforts to apply slope stabilization techniques before major foundation damage can occur. Retaining wall systems manufactured with high-grade, low permeability steel piling help to prevent erosion caused by excess water run-off, flash flooding and gradual erosion caused by exposure to frequent and heavy rain.
When it is necessary to position a new structure on any grade of incline, the implementation of advanced slope stabilization methods can serve as a type of future insurance that protects the initial investment from certain damage. In situations in which substantial damage has already occurred, these techniques can be applied after repairs have been made to ensure future stability and longevity. ESC's broad range of steel pile products makes it possible for designers and contractors to develop long-term solutions to the problems that pose a threat to all of their major projects.
