Tough laws affecting sidewalks is coming into effect across North America, and you need to ensure your sidewalks comply.
The U.S. Department of Justice’s Design Standards, based on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), state that there can’t be a change in level greater than 1/4 inch (6.4 mm). This means that between sections of your sidewalk, or between the sidewalk and the curb or surrounding terrain, there must be no greater than 1/4-inch height differential – otherwise a bevel, ramp or curb must be built to be fully accessible and avoid being a trip hazard.
GoliathTech helical piles are a smart solution to ensure that your sidewalks comply with these strict disability and safety regulations. The screw piles are spaced 4 to 8 feet apart, to level and stabilize both new sidewalk construction and repair existing sidewalks that have uplifted or sunk and therefore are now non-compliant.
The 7-foot-long screw piles are rotary-installed deep into stable soil to solidly support the sidewalk, even in expansive soil.
