Screw Pile Installation Spruce Grove Alberta
With the type of soil conditions found in and around the City of Champions, building a lasting and stable foundation for you project can be a challenge.
Choosing helical piles to support the foundation of your project can be the answer.
Engineered pilings are constructed with a hollow steel tube affixed with one or several helixes.
These helical plates allow for a more effective bearing load capacity when soil can be problematic.
During metal post installation, torque is monitored.
If the installation torque is unsatisfactory then extensions can be added to go deeper and provide greater support.
The Edmonton Screw Pile Pros are an Edmonton based screw pile installer.
Locally owned and operated by the Formstone Contracting family business.
We have the best and most experienced team of screw pile installers.
Our crews are fully insured and covered under WCB.
Having been a consistent and trusted contractor in the local construction industry for many years.
Access through fence gates into your yard is not an issue with our small skid steer.
Equipped with a slow speed high torque drive head, our 36″ wide install machine can drive 2-7/8″ and 3-1/2″ piles in almost any location.
The hydraulic heads that we use are high torque and turn at a slow speed.
These drive heads are specifically design for use with engineered screw pilings.
Often contractors will use drive heads meant for augers.
These drive heads spin too fast and disturb the soil, causing instability with potential for frost jacking.
Additionally auger heads only put out low torque.
This means these heads may not be able to achieve any engineered pile load requirements.
Trust the best, our install crews at The Edmonton Screw Pile Pros use only the right install equipment and drive heads.
This means when our people install your piles, the torque is properly applied and monitored.
Advantages Fast Installation.
With little preparation or cleanup required Immediate load bearing capacity.
Unlike concrete footings, the screw-anchors can be loaded immediately after installation Minimal ground disturbance.
As the posts do not displace the soil during installation.
The ground in which they are put into is not disturbed leaving the soil more stable Load Capacity Verification.
During installation the torque is monitored and recorded.
This indicates the soil condition in which the pilings are installed and indicated how much weight the screw pile can hold Increase Load Capacity.
In the field if the required installation torque is not met, helical plates or piling extensions can be added.
Going deeper with extensions or adding helical plates can increase the torque to meet the engineering specifications No Frost Heaving.
As all metal posts are installed well below the frost line with the load bearing helical plate typically at the deepest point.
Screw piles are resistant to frost heaving No excavating.
Because the posts simply twist into the soil there is no requirement to dig or drill any holes.
This saves time and money
