Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ are designed to support a reinforcing steel cage within a drilled shaft with a 3" concrete cover requirement. Faulty placement of the cage may cause foundation failure, which often leads to issues of contingent liability. Because the rebar cage cannot be inspected or tested after the concrete is placed in the drilled shaft, the cage must be properly supported at the outset.
Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ are made of durable, noncorrosive plastic and attach to rebar sizes #5 thru #14.
Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ are also great for supporting reinforcing steel over waterproofing in mat foundations and providing vertical support of slurry walls.
Installation is accomplished in seconds by simply pushing the Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ onto the end of a vertical bar of the rebar cage. The recommended spacing for installation is one Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ on every other vertical bar for piers under 48 inches in diameter or one Quick-Lock Pier Boots™ on every vertical bar for piers 48 inches in diameter and over.
