HELICAL PIERS

EBS Geostructural is committed to providing industry leading, earth-anchoring solutions for any application. Helical Piers, a segmented deep foundation system that supports or resists compression, tension and lateral loads, can be used for industrial, commercial, institutional and residential projects.

 

With end-bearing Helical Piers, loads are transferred down a shaft onto helical bearing plates and into load bearing soil. By applying torque to the shaft this action installs the helical pile. The helices minimally displace the soil therefore no vibrations or spoils are created during installation. The resistance required to screw the helical pile into the soil directly correlates to its capacity - the greater the resistance (by torque) the denser the soil and the higher the load carrying capabilities.

Why use Helical Piers?

  • High load capacities
  • Installation in environmentally sensitive areas
  • Quick installation when compared to traditional deep foundation solutions
  • Tight access installations
  • No spoils or vibration
  • Can be installed with both handheld and large equipment.

 

Load tests results continue to prove helical piles are highly effective at resisting tension and compression loads, making them an excellent option for many different foundation designs. 

 

Applications:

  • New Construction Support
  • Foundation Repair and Augmentation
  • Soil Nail Retention Wall
  • Tieback Anchors for New construction and Repairs
  • Telecommunication and Hydro Tower Foundations
  • Solar and Wind Foundations
  • Boardwalks, Pedestrian Bridges
