• Crawlspace Stabilizer

Crawlspace stabilizers are a reliable solution for sagging floor joists and un-supported beams within a crawlspace. The Grip-Tite Stabilizer consists of a heavy-duty, adjustable steel column that is adaptable to slab or precast block installations and can support vertical loads greater than 60,000 pounds.

Advantages

  • Cost-competitive versus other jack-post or lolly column alternatives
  • Stabilizer spacing can be adjusted to assure stresses in beam joists and soils are within acceptable limits.
  • High capacity 3-inch O.D. steel pier column can be cut to desired length at job site
  • Pre-drilled holes in steel plate allow for connection to beam or floor joists
  • Heavy-duty 10-inch long threaded rod allows for easy adjustment
  • Provides supplemental support of an axial load of up to 30,000 lbs. (30 Kips or 15 tons)
  • Compacted crushed stone or crushed (recycled) concrete base effectively transfers the structural load from the stabilizer to the existing soils. A poured concrete base (footing) may also be considered.
