Magnum Piering attests that all of its helical pile products have been designed to meet or exceed ICC-ES AC358 criteria. Magnum uses both an internal quality-assurance testing program and an outside, independent IAS accredited laboratory to conduct product testing in accordance with ICC-ES AC358 Evaluation Criteria for Helical Foundation Manufacturing.
Magnum Piering has successfully completed ICC-ES evaluation on its MH325B and MH325BR Helical Piles and MH1300-3K55BG and MH1300-3M6565BR2G Helical Pile New Construction Caps. In addition, ICC-ES based testing has been completed on Magnum’s MS150B, MS175B, and MH547 Helical Piles, MP325 Push Piers, and a number of caps and brackets by independent IAS-accredited labs. Magnum has a continuing program to expand its ICC-ESR reporting. ICC-ES evaluation under the AC358 criteria means that Magnum’s products meet or exceed the most up-to-date industry standards. This gives you a high level of assurance that the foundation repair product will perform as designed.
Magnum Piering’s director of engineering, Dr. Howard Perko, served as the lead consultant for the Ad Hoc Committee of Helical Foundation Manufacturers that drafted AC358. Magnum Piering was one of the first companies to apply to ICC-Evaluation Services, Inc., for a report number under the new AC358 criteria.
