Heavy equipment machine shop, stable polyurethane solutions
Updated: Apr 8, 2020
When managing heavy equipment, a stable and secure environment is critical. With expensive equipment throughout a client's machine shop, Expert Concrete Raising was called in to ensure a collapse wasn't imminent.
Upon inspection, a 1-3" void was found beneath the surface and required immediate attention. A series of holes were drilled and a high-density, slow reacting 4 lb polyurethane foam was injected into the holes, penetrating the surface below. What's unique about this choice is that the foam selected travels at a greater distance and therefore penetrated the loose, sandy soil before it reacted. This process created dense soil and allowed for the void to be filled, thus creating a level and safe operating floor.
Understanding time is money, concrete services were provided during the machine shop's "off" hours, ensuring operations could continue, uninterrupted.
