Innovative foundation system
Which foundation you choose for your BLOXS is, of course, up to you. However, we would like to draw your attention to the sustainable STEELROOTS foundation system. This system convinces with its attractive price-performance ratio and an installation time of only a few hours. If you sell your BLOXS later on, you can remove the STEELROOTS and sell them at the same time. Residues in the floor are thus almost impossible.
Put simply, steelroots work on the principle of a tree root. The force is transferred vertically and distributed over the feet of the STEELROOTS. Those feet are the secret of an extremely high stability, which is proven by a stability certificate. Ideal to prevent subsequent lowering.
Our show house with STEELROOTS
STEELROOTS consist of galvanized steel struts that take up the loads from the center of the mast in different directions and transfer them to the surrounding soil via pressure on the one hand and via lifting ballasting on the other. They also function in difficult subsoil conditions and soils with low load-bearing capacity. The mounted support plate allows a BLOXS to be placed on top. Even when installed, it can still be adjusted +/-40mm in height.
1. PULL TRENCH
A mini excavator is used to dig a trench with a width and depth of approx. 1 x 1 meter within a very short time. Most of the excavated material is subsequently used again for compaction.
After the trench has been excavated, the STEELROOTS are placed with their feet in the trench, aligned and the support plates leveled to the predefined height. Then the cavity around the STEELROOTS is backfilled with the previously excavated soil and compacted using a surface vibrator.
3. INSTALLATION DONE
After a few hours, all STEELROOTS are installed. Only the support plates are still sticking out of the ground. Your BLOXS will be placed on these. The number of STEELROOTS to be installed depends on your chosen BLOXS model and the condition of the soil.
