Our Screw piles

What is a screw pile?

Similar to a giant screw, the piles are driven into the ground using specialized equipment and are anchored into place thanks to a helix plate situated at the bottom of the shaft. The piles can therefore securely support structures such as houses, patios, garden sheds, fences and much more. The piles can be used to support new or existent structures.

Contrary to concrete foundations, screw piles are installed below the ground’s frost line and are impervious to ground movements. They therefore offer unparalleled stability even in poor soil quality and on inclines.

Components of Pro Post Foundations helical piles

  1. Pile head

    Fixed or adjustable, the pile head allows to adjust the level of the structure being supported.

  2. Central shaft

    The central shaft comes in different sizes and lengths in order to fit the structure’s size, be it a new construction or a renovation. The shaft’s diameter and length will vary according to the load bearing requirements and the type of soil. At the bottom of the shaft, there is a circular helix plate that holds the pile in place.

  3. Helix plate

    The helix plate anchors the pile under the ground’s freezing line and prevents it from being torn out of the ground. The plate size depends on the type of construction, the soil’s load bearing capacity and the weight of the structure.
