ROCK-IT™ Helical Lead Section Penetrates High Blow Count Soils

The ROCK-IT™ lead section is an innovative solution to penetrate rocky or high blow count soils without pre-drilling or field modification. The single carbide, patent pending design was developed after site testing of several rock anchor configurations to provide an economical, yet proven solution to reach load-bearing depths in high blow count material.

Key Benefits

  • Wear resistant, offset carbide tip designed to break through rocky soil
  • Reduced installation time to save time and money
  • Reduced spiking of torque and chatter during installation for better pile performance and a safer alternative

Voice of the Customer

“The CHANCE® ROCK-IT performed remarkably well at a site where we typically cannot install a standard CHANCE Helical Pile due to shallow limestone layers. It has given us more opportunities to provide a helical system in soil conditions that we would typically have to walk away from”
- Josh Lindberg- Helical Concepts, Inc., Wylie, TX.

“The ROCK-IT lead definitely helped us to penetrate the thin hard sandstone lense encountered at 11 feet. In discussing the test results with my installers, we believe the ROCK-IT would be our standard lead section”
- Michael Kerker, PE- Highlands Ranch, CO.

“The ROCK-IT performed so well, I recommend the technology should be standard on all lead sections”
- Dino Vito- EBS- Ontario, Canada *as compared to a standard, comparable lead section in rocky, high blow count soils
