Grade beams are made of reinforced concrete and are used in deep foundation situations where the surface soil has weak load-bearing capacities. Grade beams are used for expansive and weak soil, as well as in situations where a deep foundation is recommended. Grade beams rest on piles that are used as a foundation solution in weak soil. CNT Foundations installs grade beam footing to evenly circulate the weight of your commercial building on poor soil.
Footings and Foundations
Grade beam footings support your structure in any soil. Grade beams are fortified and designed to be stronger than your average continuous footing. This concrete footing is better suited for supporting large structures on weak soil. Grade beam footings can bear heavier loads without the risk of failure.
