44,000 Installed Helical Piles, 1400 Completed Projects

Helical piles are an end-bearing deep foundation system that has applications in both compression and tension. By applying torque to the shaft this action installs the helical pile with minimal displacement or disturbance. No vibrations or spoils are created during installation. Loads are transferred down the shaft onto the helical plates and into the minimally disturbed load bearing soil beneath or above each helical plate. The resistance required to torque the helical pile into the soil directly correlates to its capacity - the greater the resistance (torque) the denser the soil and the higher the load carrying capabilities.

Advantages

  • Capacities of 1000kN SLS load
  • Predictable load capacities
  • Quick installation when compared to traditional deep foundation solutions
  • Ability to install in tight access installations (5ft wide) and low headroom (8ft high)
  • Limited or no spoils/vibrations
  • No dewatering required - can be installed in a high water table application
  • Installation in environmentally sensitive areas

Load test results continue to prove helical piles are highly effective at resisting tension and compression loads, making them an excellent option for many different foundation designs.
