New ICC certification makes Cantsink the sole source for widest helix products

Cantsink Manufacturing is now the only maker of helical piers at 16-inch and 19-inch diameters that offer certification from the International Code Council. The ICC is an independent, member-focused association dedicated to developing model codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process to construct safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient structures. Through its AC358 specifications, the ICC tests helical piers for their compliance with a set of industry quality standards for these foundation products.

At the World of Concrete, Cantsink will be in Booth S13550 to provide information on its full range of helical piers. Cantsink’s 2 7/8” HHS and its 1.5” RCS have received ICC certification after 20 months of testing, inspection and published reporting. This new ICC-certified product line offers a wider range of options for tie back anchors, vertical and compression piles and micropiles. Results can be found online under ESR-1559.

Patrick Hutchinson, president of Cantsink, helped the ICC develop its standards for helical piles. He said Cantsink and its staff are proud to uphold the highest quality standards for product performance. “As we celebrate our 30th anniversary year, we are more committed than ever to offering the widest range of helical products on the market,” Hutchinson said. “We are proud to have received the ICC’s official certification after extensive testing and independent scrutiny.”

Made in Georgia from 100% U.S. steel, Cantsink helical piers offer guaranteed stability for foundations, retaining walls and other structures under a wide range of soil and weather conditions. Cantsink products are ideal for new construction as well as remedial stabilization. Cantsink’s special design makes its helical piers 50% stronger than any other steel piers on the market. Its installation process is also shorter and less disruptive than other stabilization methods.

Leveraging decades of experience in foundation support and repair, Cantsink experts analyze the specific conditions of every job, recommend the right approach, and provide the cost-effective products to fit the requirements. Cantsink has proudly established its long reputation as an accomplished provider of high quality workmanship and a leading structural innovator in the foundation installation and repair business.
