About Screw Piling
Screwpiles are wound into the ground much like a screw into wood. Screwpiles are installed using various earthmoving equipment fitted with rotary hydraulic attachments. Machinery varies from skid-steer loaders to 5 tonne through 80 tonne excavators. 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. Correct installation techniques are paramount to meet engineered design load and settlement outcomes. Incorrect techniques are likely to result in poor overall pile performance.
Screwpiles can be referred to as screw piles, steel screw-in foundations, screw piers, helical piles, helical anchors, screw anchors, screw foundations and helical piers.
Instant Screw Piling provides piling, underpinning and anchoring solutions to foundation problems across a diverse range of building and construction projects. We have been involved in creating innovative, cost and time effective solutions for the past eight years. In many cases substantial benefits are gained by using Instant Screw Piles compared to traditional piling methods.
These benefits include the speed of operation, vibration free installation and greater profits. The system is uniquely simple and offers a cost effective alternative to traditional deep foundation techniques. Common construction equipment can, at low cost, be modified to install screw piles. The system is environmentally friendly and restricts potential damage to adjacent structures by eliminating vibration during installation.
