What is a Helical Pile?
First, Helical Piles are a no mess, time efficient, environmentally friendly alternative to digging/excavating and using traditional concrete. Helical piles are sometimes referred to as helical piers, anchors, and/or posts. These piles are used to build foundation systems for various structures , in all areas (Residential, Commercial, Municipal, and Industrial). A helical pile consists of a central shaft and a helix plate(s) (these vary in size). The size and configuration of a helical pile is based on the design load the pile will carry. They are driven (screwed) into the ground by a high speed torque/low speed hydraulic drive motor attached to our machine.
