Trip Hazard Mitigation with Polyurethane

Sunken, settled, and uneven concrete slabs create trip hazards that become serious safety concerns for businesses and property owners. Trip hazards, especially those in high foot traffic areas, can result in people falling or becoming seriously injured.  Statewide Foam & Coatings offers a trip hazard mitigation solution that is fast, effective, and minimally invasive. 

Polyurethane injection is a highly effective solution for repairing concrete slabs that may pose a trip hazard. The process works by injecting a polyurethane solution beneath the slab. With just one application, the polyurethane can fill voids, re-establish load bearing capacity, and level the slab back to the correct grade.

Benefits of Trip Hazard Mitigation with Polyurethane:

How Trip Hazard Mitigation Works

Once injected, the polyurethane aggressively seeks out voids, like how water seeks the path of least resistance. After a few short minutes, the polymer reacts and begins to expand throughout the voids and the weak points in the soil. The polyurethane then begins to use expansive pressure to find the joint separations or cracks.

Step 1

Polyurethane is injected into the void through the slab
Step 1 Concrete Lifting and Leveling

Injections are made through 5/8′ holes that are drilled through the slab. 

Step 2

Polyurethane begins to expand, packing the voids and weak soils
Step 2 Concrete Lifting and Leveling

Once injected, the polyurethane travels throughout the voids and expands up to 25 times its original volume through the soil. 

Step 3

Once the void is filled, polyurethane packs soils and lifts slab.
Step 3 Concrete Lifting and Leveling with Polyurethane Injection

After filling voids, the polyurethane continues to expand, packing soils, and lifts the slab. The polyurethane cures to 95% capacity within 25 minutes.

Why Our Polyurethane Solutions Work

Our polyjacking process is ideal for repairing trip hazards caused by settled or sinking concrete slabs. Lifting concrete with polyurethane foam is cheaper than concrete replacement. Polyjacking is a reliable process used for years by many concrete leveling contractors.

Our polymer injection application is a no excavation rocking slab stabilization solution, allowing for minimal impact to your structure. Our project footprint is minimal, requiring a small trailer, a hose running from the trailer, and small 5/8″ holes that are drilled through the structure to give us access to drive our rods to target locations and inject our high-density polyurethane.

We use polyurethanes that are light-weight, reducing added weight to the area. This is a major advantage because often times treatment is required because a structure’s weight is too much for the geology of the area.

Our polymers set up to 95% capacity within 15 minutes, unlike other solutions which require 24-48 hours and ideal soil conditions. After 15 minutes, the material can be driven on and take on heavy loads

Our polymers are environmentally inert and have no impact to the environment or groundwater.

Not only is our process the fastest and most effective foundation and slab lifting application, but it is the most cost-effective too.
