CHANCE Brand SS5 and SS175 Helical Foundation System products, manufactured by Hubbell Power Systems, Inc. (HPS), received a comprehensive evaluation report ESR-2794 from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that SS5 and SS175 helical pile systems and devices are in compliance with code requirements.

"HPS -CHANCE can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements," said ICC-ES President Mark Johnson. "Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency."
ICC-ES thoroughly examined the CHANCE helical pile product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the helical foundation products are code compliant. "The product evaluation was a lengthy process,” said Gary Seider, Engineering Manager for HPS. “The Staff at ICC-ES leaves no stone unturned in their effort to ensure the products being evaluated are compliant with the Code.”
