New technical guide for Helifix Dixie Micro-piles

4 Jan 2016

Helifix has produced a new 12 page technical brochure giving full details of its versatile, high performance, Dixie micro-piles, which are used to rapidly and cost-effectively stabilise buildings suffering from subsidence.

The brochure looks at the benefits of using the innovative, simple, but extremely effective Dixie micro-pile system, such as minimal disturbance to occupants and no spoil removal, and full technical specifications are provided. The main causes of subsidence are also examined and how, following detailed investigations, appropriate repairs are designed based on the damage, the weight of the individual property and the local ground conditions.

A step by step installation process is included in the new literature, complementing Helifix’s recently launched animation on the micro-pile system, which can be viewed at Illustrated case studies are also available.

Backed by International Code Council (ICC) certification and conformance to AC358, the International Standard for helical foundation underpinning systems, these well proven and technically advanced micro-piles are the ideal solution for the problem of foundation settlement.

Copies of the Dixie micro-piles brochure, an important new addition to the Helifix technical library, can be downloaded from the website or requested direct from Helifix.
