Learn more about HELICAL piles products and advantages to suit your piling design requirements.
A helical pile/ helical anchor is a factory manufactured steel piling deep foundation system.
It's designed to resist axial compression, axial tension, and or lateral loads from structures.
It consists of :
a) Central steel shaft
b) 1, or more helical shaped bearing plate, helix
c) Mechanical coupling joint
d) Bracket/ cap
A helical pile/ anchor is screwed into the ground by application of torsion by piling machine, in simple say it is screwing a big screw into soil. Helical piles can be extended by jointing the extension shaft till until a required depth or a suitable bearing soil stratum is reached. Load is transferred to the soil through the helix bearing plate.
Helical piles sections are joined with bolted couplings. Without augering out and remove the soil, the helix plate screw into ground with the standard 3" pitch in minimizing soil disturbance. Thus, some country name it as screw piles. It's benefit of no vibration, no spoils and quick installation is an alternative piling foundation of micro pile and jack in pile.
In 21st century of smart phones & internet, the helical screw piles is not a sophisticated product. However, it continues to serve ever-expanding roles for public utilities structures and in piling construction industry. Why?
SIMPLICITY is the greatest value it reserved. An uncomplicated product with multiple usages carry out by the minimum installation equipments and piling machine, thereby it's reduce piling cost and resources use and resulting to the conventional HEAVY PILE TURN GREEN.
