Screw Piles Glenora Edmonton
As screw pile equipment and technology has improved over the years we have advanced along with it.
It has become more common in Alberta to utilize screw pilings vs concrete.
Compact skid steers and high torque drive heads make building foundations possible and easy in any location.
Often providing an economical advantage over other piling alternatives.
We truly believe in providing strong, stable screw pile foundations that will stand the test of time.
We are diligent about conforming to architectural standards, building codes.
This passion for providing quality craftsmanship, ensures the safety and longevity of all building projects supported by our piling foundations.
Ideal for residential decks, cantilevers, fences sheds and retaining walls there are many home project where screw-in foundations can be used.
Commercial builds often require cement slab support, tower anchors, sign support and support for light stands.
Finally industry applications light foundations for solar farms, wind farms, power transmission towers and modular building.
The economical versatility of helical piling foundations means the applications are endless.
The hydraulic heads that we use are high torque and turn at a slow speed.
These drive heads are specifically design for use with engineered screw pilings.
Often contractors will use drive heads meant for augers.
These drive heads spin too fast and disturb the soil, causing instability with potential for frost jacking.
Additionally auger heads only put out low torque.
This means these heads may not be able to achieve any engineered pile load requirements.
Trust the best, our install crews at The Edmonton Screw Pile Pros use only the right install equipment and drive heads.
This means when our people install your piles, the torque is properly applied and monitored.
Advantages Fast Installation.
With little preparation or cleanup required Immediate load bearing capacity.
Unlike concrete footings, the screw-anchors can be loaded immediately after installation Minimal ground disturbance.
As the posts do not displace the soil during installation.
The ground in which they are put into is not disturbed leaving the soil more stable Load Capacity Verification.
During installation the torque is monitored and recorded.
This indicates the soil condition in which the pilings are installed and indicated how much weight the screw pile can hold Increase Load Capacity.
In the field if the required installation torque is not met, helical plates or piling extensions can be added.
Going deeper with extensions or adding helical plates can increase the torque to meet the engineering specifications No Frost Heaving.
As all metal posts are installed well below the frost line with the load bearing helical plate typically at the deepest point.
Screw piles are resistant to frost heaving No excavating.
Because the posts simply twist into the soil there is no requirement to dig or drill any holes.
This saves time and money
