Shaner Industries is proud to announce that it recently completed the installation of custom-designed steel foundations to support large solar dish assemblies in Arizona.
Faced with installing solar dish assemblies - with a diameter in excess of 30 feet and weighing over 3,000 pounds each - in a limited access area, the project contractor selected Shaner Industries' metal foundations to support these large structures.
Shaner Industries' patented steel foundation designs and proprietary installation methods eliminate the need for concrete, therefore much of the equipment and many of the processes necessary to install concrete were eliminated. There was no digging and disturbed soil was used for back fill. Installation was quick and easy with minimal clean up and no spoils to haul away.
"Our patented steel foundations require no concrete to install. They are pre-engineered, delivered to the job site ready to install, and the structure can be mounted to its foundation immediately" said Geoffrey Feidelberg, CEO of Shaner Industries.
"By eliminating many of the processes necessary to install standard concrete foundations, our installation processes are much faster than standard concrete installations and less equipment, less man power, and less space is required."
Shaner Industries' saves its average client more than 50% of the time and nearly 30% of the costs involved with installing standard concrete foundations. With many advantages over concrete foundations, Shaner Industries offers a truly innovative, time-efficient, and cost-effective solution for foundation installations for just about any structure being erected in remote, congested and limited access areas.
