About Screw Piles

Screw piles are a type of deep foundation that can be installed quickly with minimal noise and vibration. Screw piles are wound into the ground, much like a screw is wound into wood. This is an extremely efficient foundation installation. Coupled with their mechanism of dispersing load, they provid effective in-ground performance in a wide range of soils types. Screw piles are a preferred support of deck foundations due to their ability to distribute the weight into the soil below the deck.

 

How they work

The piles are made of circular hollow steel sections with one or more helices attached to them. Screw piles cut into the soil following a constant pitch, as opposed to auguring through it. The helical flights and shafts are specifically designed to suit the ground conditions.

Once the pile has reached the target depth it remains permanently in place. The protruding reinforcement provides the connection to the building structure above, and in some cases increase the capacity of the pile.
