When you walk forest trails, you will often set foot on a walkway installed to serve as a bridge over a crevasse or to allow you to get across boggy terrain without getting yourself wet! Such installations are becoming more and more popular in various municipalities. Did you know that such walkways could be installed on screw piles rather than on concrete piles (Sonotube) or more traditional foundations that usually don’t resist frost and thaw cycles very well?
Stability and solidity
Pro Post Foundations screw piles are sunk down below the ground’s frost line and anchored firmly into the soil thanks to a helix plate set at the bottom of the piles in order to ensure your structure’s stability. Our piles are sturdy enough to withstand any type of weather. They can support 25% more weight than any other pile, and they are 40% stronger in tensile strength!
Quick and easy installation
Since each project is unique, the number, size and placement of the piles are determined according to the type of structure and its weight as well as the type of soil where they will be installed.
Your site can only be accessed through a narrow path? No problem! Our Kubota mini‑tractor can go anywhere! It can work in tight quarters and get across rugged terrain. Your land is rocky, boggy, inclined or submerged? Our equipment is able to work under any circumstances and can even remove rocks if needed in order to allow pile installation.
Screw piles are a friendly solution for ecosystems since their impact is very limited. Made of durable materials, piles are reusable and can be removed if need be, leaving behind only the hole they were driven into.
