SIDEWALK DIVISION

SIDEWALK DIVISION

SIDEWALK DIVISION

Sidewalks have a tendency to settle quite easily.  This settling creates trip hazards around drop inlets, at curbs, handicapped ramps and many other locations. Sidewalks are lightweight in comparison to other concrete structures, and lifting them successfully requires extensive knowledge and experience to avoid over lifting. Nortex’s sidewalk division consists of three crews that specialize in lifting and leveling all types of sidewalk trip hazards. This division has many years of success and can be relied on to get the job done right. 

SIDEWALK PROJECTS

SIDEWALK LIFTING TIME LAPSE

Time-lapse video of multiple settled sidewalk panels being lifted to match the curb. In real time, this sidewalk was lifted back to its correct elevation in 30 minutes.

 

 

SIDEWALK TRIP HAZARDS

The projects shown below consist of before and after photos taken at multiple school campuses of different districts. The photos below are just a snapshot of all the projects that have been completed. Crews are capable of lifting many settled sidewalks each day, eliminating hundreds of trip hazards in a matter of weeks. In addition to lifting, the Sidewalk Division will complete each job by adding joint sealant between each panel (if needed). 

 

 

JOINT SEALANT APPLICATION

The video below shows the apparatus used for joint sealing projects. This equipment allows crews to apply the sealant quickly by machine, which would otherwise be applied slowly by hand. 

 

 

STAIR LIFTING

The photos shown below depict a small front porch staircase that had settled a few inches to one side. Only one injection hole was drilled, allowing the staircase to be lifted back to normal in just 15 minutes from the start of injection.

RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALK LIFTING

Pictured below is a residential sidewalk that had several panels fault consecutively, forming a dip. Here, crews injected high-density polyurethane foam, lifting the panels back into place.  The job was completed in under 3 hours.
