Helical Pile

A steel pile with helical plates placed at strategic positions along the shaft. The plates give the foundation both tension and compression bearing capacity. The pile is normally connected in groups to a steel load transfer grillage. No concrete is needed.

Depending on location and the solution designed, screw piles can be installed:

  • raked at angles up to 15°
  • protruding from the ground, or buried
  • in any ground including solid rock
  • to support structures in compression and tension
  • at grade, on embankment and in cutting
  • in bespoke situations to suit your requirements

ScrewFast provide an extensive training programme for all installers, ensuring the helical screw piles are installed accurately and reliably every time. Every trained installer is supported by a fully qualified and experienced design team contactable 24 hours a day 365 days a year.This is a contributing factor as to why ScrewFast Foundations have a proud history without ever having a failure in service.
