To address the expanding market of our popular TP-3 Helical Test Probe units, Apex Designs has purchased the domain name Helicalprobetest.com and is once again working with the talented group over at Kickstand Creative to build the all new site to showcase our lineup of soil compaction testing tools.
The TP-3 (terra probe 3) is the latest evolution in our lineup of soil compaction testing tools. Traditionally used by geotech and civil engineers for pre-construction testing, the helical probe test remains the most efficient method of determining soil compaction properties at relatively shallow depths. Our new TP-3 unit features a revised helical shape that augers quickly into the ground by either cordless electrical drill or by wrench. Weighing in at a mere 1.4 lb, the new TP-3 is much more portable than the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer and performs tests 4 times quicker. Considering that the price of the TP-3 is a small fraction of the cost of the DCP test units, The new TP-3 is also gaining popularity with the home inspection test industry, where it can be used to quickly test for problem areas adjacent to deck footings and home foundations.
The new site will allow for direct inquiries and online sales. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
