Direct Embedment Sections

The Great Plains Towers Direct Embedment Section (DES) is a simple one piece component which has cost savings benefits.

The DES is by far the most commonly utilized design with the biggest advantage for installing our Dakota SS tower foundation over installing 12 anchor base bolts.

Place the DES (Direct Embedment Section) into the excavated hole along with the rebar & fill the excavation with concrete while following our pre-engineered self-supporting foundation drawing is quick & simple.

Advantages of direct embedment:

  • Time Savings – Faster installation.
  • Simple – One single item to lower into the excavated area vs. 12 individual anchor base bolts & a bolt support jig.
  • Appearance – No exposed base plates, or anchors base bolts.
  • Engineered – The Tower and Footings are continuous, forming a stronger structure.
  • Environmental – Does not contaminate the soil.
  • Landscaping – Whether it be grass, concrete or asphalt, the surrounding ground is finished right up to the foundation edge.
  • Maintenance free –  DES is placed into the redi-mix concrete without the problem of rust corrosion.
