The Atlas Resistance® Pier is a manufactured, two-stage product designed specifically to produce structural support strength. First, the Pier Pipe is driven to a firm bearing stratum; then the lift equipment is combined with a manifold system to lift the structure. The Atlas Resistance® Pier System procedure provides measured support strength. Atlas Resistance® Piers are spaced at adequate centers where each pier is driven to a suitable stratum and then tested to a force greater than required to lift the structure. This procedure effectively load tests each pier prior to lift and provides a measured Factor of Safety on each pier at lift.
