Helical Pier Systems are deep foundation systems used to support or resist load applications. With a simple but powerful design, they can be used as an alternative method to drilled shafts and driven piles. Its mechanical design maximizes the capacity of its three essential parts, the bearing plate, the anchor, and the termination.
These systems are the perfect alternative when shallow foundation solutions are unable to carry the load. Deep foundation solutions transmit the structural loads to soil/rock deeper in the ground. Helical pier systems are effective due to the speed of installation, their resistance to buckling in weak soils, and they provide corrosion protection.
Helical piers can be used for almost any application where site access is limited or remote. These systems are encouraged in environmentally sensitive areas, such as wetlands and protected forestland, and in expansive soil areas, they can save money and time compared to over-excavation and fill alternatives.
Advantages of helical piles include:
No need for concrete to cure
Small installation equipment
Install in anytime of year
