New Concrete Foundation System

10/03/2013 @ 5:05pm

Morton Buildings new concrete foundation eliminates wood in the ground and uses specifically designed components and precast concrete columns to provide increased strength and durability in a range of climate conditions. “Our new precast concrete columns are specifically designed by our company and for all of our buildings,” says Brian Haraf, Morton Buildings.

Morton’s concrete mix uses the latest concrete technology. The formula’s ingredients create a concrete that inhibits steel rebar corrosion, withstands shock, increases durability to freeze and thaw, and gives a smooth concrete finish with 10,000-psi compressive strength. “Our concrete strength is 2.5 times greater than a typical concrete foundation wall and footing system,” adds Haraf.

Beyond the concrete columns, the new foundation system also leverages additional components for added strength and stability. These include internal, threaded-adjustment brackets, providing a level framing point and anchoring the building against wind uplift; stainless splashboard brackets with improved corrosion resistance to the elements; and internal column connectors, custom-designed to connect to Morton’s laminated wood columns and provide a rigid structural connection.
