The Modular Support Column (MSC) employs the same technology as the Primary Support Column, featuring a universal steel head and adjustment mechanism that is secured directly to primary structural components of a modular home to optimize foundation performance.
The Basic Unit of the MSC is the Multi-Hazard Support Column. The MSC uses the number of support columns indicated by the size, weight, and configuration of the manufactured home. For a standard, doublewide manufactured home, the MSC is normally 12 support columns. Each support column consists of:
The Basic Unit of the MSC is the Multi-Hazard Support Column. The MSC uses the number of support columns indicated by the size, weight, and configuration of the factory built home. Each support column consists of:
- Concrete Footing. Pre-cast, reinforced (11 feet of steel reinforcing bar), high strength (3,000+ psi test concrete), light weight (110 pounds), 24″ by 38″ footprint. Delivered fully cured (tested to >200,000 pounds), ready for immediate use. Steel Stand. High strength (tested to >35,000 pounds), attached to the footing, single-bolt coarse adjustments (2″ increments). Four base heights allow the MSC to accommodate a wide range of foundation heights.
- Steel Head Plate. Patented Technology. Integral part of the stand, high strength (tested to >35,000 pounds), load bearing and leveling, infinite position fine adjustment (3″), very easy single-bolt adjustment, large load bearing area.
- 24-inch Frost Depth Zones. The standard MSC fully complies with frost depth requirements where frost depth is 24 inches or less. More than 75% of the total U.S. factory built housing marketplace to date is in areas where frost depth is 24 inches or less. Product development is addressing the >24 inch frost depth zones.
