Micropile Foundation Solutions

All-in-One Application–Grouting & Drilling Simultaneously

Deep foundation systems transfer structural loads through to competent soils or rock when shallow foundations are not feasible due to weak, compressible soils near ground surface. These systems help compensate for when the physical properties of your site do not match your project goals. Speed up your project delivery on deep foundation jobs by utilizing Magnacore Self-Drilling Anchors for your micropile product.

Magnacore features a single, top-down operation by the injection of high-pressure, neat cement grout mixture pumped through the bar, while also serving as the drill string. The neat grout exits through the ports at the end of the sacrificial bit and permeates into the looser adjacent soils, forming a competent reinforced grout column.

Micropiles can be used in a variety of applications. Particularly useful when projects are launched in areas with limited access or weak types of soil, they have become a preferred method of deep foundation soil stabilization for their reliability, versatility, and efficiency. Magnacore Micropiles can be utilized in a variety of situations, including:

  • Limited Access, Low Overhead Clearance
  • New Construction or Retrofit
  • Design-Build
  • Cased and Uncased Applications
  • Foundation Rehabilitations & Repairs
  • Foundation Stabilization Projects for Adjacent Structures
