IDEAL Group Receives ESR-3750 from ICC-ES for Company’s Two 2.875” Diameter Helical Piles
The International Code Council Evaluation Services (ICC-ES) recently issued ESR-3750 to IDEAL Manufacturing certifying that two of the company’s 2.875” (73 mm) diameter helical piles met or exceeded the testing specifications defined in AC358 - the ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Helical Foundation Systems and Devices. The two certified 2.875” diameter products have a wall thickness of 0.203 inch (5.15 mm) and 0.276 inch (7.01 mm).
According to company officials, these two products have the highest yield strength of any 2.875” helical piles that have previously received ICC-ES ESR reports.
“We’ve always been very tenacious about delivering a high quality product on a consistent basis, but it’s rewarding to see the ICC recognize that in the form of an ESR report. Our newly acquired ICC-ES Evaluation Report has put us in a place offer the highest strength 2.875” helical pile shaft ever evaluated and approved under the ICC-ES standard and serves to further establish our reputation as an industry leader. Having this report in addition to our other standardized testing and certification processes allows us to provide installers, specifiers, and government officials with another level of comfort,” says Jason Henderberg, Director of Manufacturing at IDEAL.
