Recommend Factors of Safety for Design
The variability of soil conditions that may exist at a project site, plus the varied nature of loading on structures and how these loads are transferred through foundation elements, requires the consulting engineer and/or dealer/installing contractor to use an appropriate Factor of Safety (FS) in design for use with the CHANCE Instant Foundation System. Generally this Factor of Safety is a minimum of 2:1 on all permanent loading conditions.
