What Is A Helical Pile?

 What is a helical pile? A helical pile, also known as a helical pier or screw pile, is a deep foundation system used to support structures, especially in areas with challenging soil conditions.

It consists of a steel shaft with helical (spiral) flights welded to it, resembling a large screw. The installation of helical piles involves mechanically screwing the pile into the ground using hydraulic machinery.

This process offers several advantages, such as minimal disturbance to the surrounding soil and the ability to penetrate various types of subsurface conditions, including rocky or unstable terrain.

Helical piles are particularly useful in projects requiring load-bearing capacity, such as building foundations, retaining walls, or boardwalks.

They can be employed in both residential and commercial construction, providing a reliable and efficient foundation solution.

The helical design of the pile enhances its load-bearing capacity by increasing the surface area in contact with the soil. Additionally, helical piles can be easily monitored and tested during installation to ensure they meet specific engineering requirements.

In summary, a helical pile is a versatile and effective foundation system, providing stability and load-bearing support in diverse soil conditions, making it a valuable solution in construction projects where traditional foundations may be impractical or challenging.
