For new builds
During severe earthquakes the ABI Pier system protects detached buildings, their occupants and contents. Post earthquake, ABI Piers can be easily relevelled and height adjusted. The ABI Pier system has been tested and appraised by BRANZ as compliant with New Zealand Building Code NZS 3604. ABI Piers are available with ground clearances of 450mm, 600mm and 900mm.

For existing builds
The ABI Piers timber base isolation system is designed to be retrofitted to existing timber piles under existing houses, but is not height adjustable. Because piles supporting decking can be easily accessed by removing decking timbers, this system is also perfect to base isolate decking adjoining houses fitted with the ABI Piers adjustable height base isolation system.
