Screwpiles, sometimes referred to as screw piles and also called Helical piles, are a steel screw-in piling and ground anchoring system used for building deep foundations. Screwpiles are manufactured using varying sizes of tubular hollow sections for the pile or anchors shaft.
The pile shaft transfers a structure's load into the pile. Helical steel plates are welded to the pile shaft in accordance with the intended ground conditions
Screwpiles are wound into the ground much like a screw into wood. Screwpiles are installed using various earthmoving equipment fitted with rotary hydraulic attachments. Rotary hydraulic powerheads with torque capacities ranging from 5,000Nm to 500,000Nm are custom fitted using various boom configurations. Special drive attachments connect the screwpile to the machine.
The main benefits of screwpile foundations include: shorter project times, ease of installation, ease of access, reduction of the carbon footprint, ease of removal when the foundations are no longer required, reduced risk to the workforce, and reduced costs.
