Helical Piles

Screw Piles with Helical Anchors

Screw Piles with Helical Anchors are exclusive among most other types of foundations and anchoring systems. With the ability to be loaded immediately after installations they save more time than concrete or grout which needs to harden.

Helical Piles, How They Work?

The load is transferred from the shaft to the helix plate(s) which is driven below grade into the strongest possible soil conditions. The helical pile is “screwed” into the ground by a high torque/low speed hydraulic drive motor which can be attached to numerous types of equipment including an excavator, or skid steer. Helical piles are unaffected by the presence of a high water table and caving soil conditions. Their strength and weight capacity is gaged by torque during installation and natural ground forces keep them in place. This is important, unlike traditional methods the piles integrity is measured and engineered for each project.

Offered by B.R.A.G. Contracting

B.R.A.G Contracting is now using them for deck base structure and (garden shed) small building foundations.

Why Use Helical Piles?

The benefits to helical piles are overwhelmingly in favor of their use. Their cost is often lower when compared with other foundation systems. They have extremely high load capabilities. Up to 100 tons per pile. Their capacity can be measured during installation by torque in soil conditions. They save time because you can load them immediately after installing them.  Less mess, or little disruption of ground and minimal dirt displacement when installing. They can be installed in unstable, even caving soil conditions. Governments and regulators understand and recognize the product and how it applies to building codes. Piles can be installed in high-water table situations. You don’t need large equipment or machinery for installation. The piles can be installed all year round, even in frost conditions, and frost won’t cause them to heave. They last longer than other building materials and cause little environmental impact. They can even be removed and are often used for temporary structures. Installation is fast and quiet.
