How Piling Screw Piles and Underpinning can help

It can be exciting and difficult to do your own home improvements. The advice presented here is sure to be helpful if you are a novice DIY home improvement enthusiast. Read and follow the tips, and you will be proud of your results and your skills.

“Screwpiles, sometimes referred to as screw piles and also called Helical piles, are a steel screw-in piling and ground anchoring system used for building deep foundations. Screwpiles are manufactured using varying sizes of tubular hollow sections for the pile or anchors shaft.

The pile shaft transfers a structure’s load into the pile. Helical steel plates are welded to the pile shaft in accordance with the intended ground conditions. Helices can be press-formed to a specified pitch or simply consist of flat plates welded at a specified pitch to the pile’s shaft. The number of helices, their diameters and position on the pile shaft as well as steel plate thickness are all determined by a combination of:

The combined structure design load requirement

The geotechnical parameters

Environmental corrosion parameters

The minimum design life of the structure being supported or restrained.

Screwpile steel shaft sections are subjected to design parameters and building codes standards for the region of manufacture.” Courtesy of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screwpiles
