FOUR DIFFERENT FOUNDATION SYSTEMS ARE TESTED FOR SKINTONG
1 - ANCHOR SCREW
In this system, long screws ( ground anchor ) are rotated into the ground. This can be done manually or with a special machine. This method is particularly suitable for small to medium building solid floors without large stones.
2 - RING ANCHOR
The " ring beam " system was developed specifically for SKINTONG buildings. It is suitable for all soils . The anchor members are also made of the SKINTONG plates . They are dug into the soil and leveled . Subsequently, a foundation plate of SKINTONG is glued directly onto the anchor. This is an extremely durable method which survives even earthquakes.
3 - CONCRETE
A concrete foundation is suitable for loose to tight soils and larger house structures .The SKINTONG walls while bolted to the concrete floor and glued.
4 - WATERTANKS / CELLAR SYSTEMS
In this system, a large tank or several individual tanks are either embedded in the ground or placed directly on the ground. The method is suitable for all soils. The aboveground tank is particularly suited for flooding areas.
