• Brilliant Rack Foundation Support

Foundation Services

Brilliant Rack’s engineering team can perform a complete site analysis and provide a cost-efficient, structurally sound foundation solution to meet any location-specific challenge.

Choosing the right foundation solution generally requires an understanding of the long-term requirements of the project and a thorough analysis of the site conditions. Helical piles are typically a good fit for sandy soil conditions or very cold climates since they avoid failures due to frost heave. Driven piles are a cost-efficient solution for standard soils and temperate weather. Either way, Brilliant Rack will partner with you to find the optimal solution for your needs.

Driven Beams

Driven beams are the fastest, most cost-efficient foundation solution for rack support.

  • Quick, efficient installation
  • GPS-guided, pile-driving machinery can drive maximum-length beams
  • Minimal ground disruption, lower risk of unearthing hazardous or contaminated subsurface materials
  • Accommodates variety of surface loads

Helical Piles

Helical Piles are the top choice of EPCs and developers for lasting structural stability. Brilliant Rack’s ICC-certified, patented, steel helical piers are manufactured supports installed below the ground surface to provide lasting underground reinforcement beneath inverter pads and racks. Our steel piers are specially fabricated with a unique helix plate at the lower end of the 2-7/8” steel shaft that is easy to install and provides maximum stability.

  • 10-year warranty and 100-year life expectancy
  • Patented helical design makes these supports 50% stronger than other helicals
  • Manufactured in Georgia from 90% recycled steel
  • Verified through stringent, independent testing by the International Code Council, which develops safe, reliable building standards worldwide
  • Custom-engineered and adaptable to a wide range of weather and soil conditions
  • Easy to install using readily available skid steer machinery; installation services also available upon request
  • Helical piles are self-verifying; even standing water is no problem for the installation process.
  • Adaptable to even the most difficult site conditions, offering extra creativity in the design process, as well as, less construction time.
  • Helical pile installation is a vibration-free process. Utilizing helical piles for foundations in urban areas is advantageous as noise level is reduced and vibration to nearby structures is at a minimum.
