Use Of Screw Piles

Spread the love

The screw pile is just a giant screw and its function is quite similar to the ordinary screw but since it is giant therefore it is used for greater purpose and is used during the construction. These are designed to construct the deep foundation. These are very strong foundations and are used for securing many heavy constructions such as houses, gardens, fence and sometimes patios and sheds as well. It is not necessary that these piles could only be installed to support some structure that is newly constructed but if some old or existent structures gets weak and its foundations are getting weak and are not strong enough. Then the screw piles Melbourne could be used to strengthen these old foundations as well.

These work contrary to the concrete foundation which are installed above the ground. Rather than these foundation are installed below the ground. These are water resistant. The stability that these offer are much more than the concrete foundations and these are efficient regardless of the quality of the ground in which these are installed.

There are basically three component of the screw pile of Foundation Solutions Australia that together make these. The first component is called the pile head. As the name tells this is the upper part of the screw pile. This head could either be fixed in its position or could be adjustable depending on the requirement. The head of the pile is used for adjusting structure level that is being supported by it. The next component is the central shaft. This is the middle part of the screw pile and. The length and size of structural shaft is different for different type of structure. Either it is used in some new construction or is used for the renovation of some old or existent construction. Its size is always such that it matches the size of the structure. The load bearing is a parameter that is used for determining the diameter of the shaft and similarly the fact that which type of soil is present in the ground also defines the diameter and length of the shaft. The third component is the helix plate. This is situated at the bottom of the central shaft. It is a circular plate and its purpose is to  keep the piles in their defined place. Another usage of this helix plate is that it holds on the screw pile in the ground and prevent it from getting torn out. Just as the central shaft the size of helix plate also depends on the type and quality of the soil, the requirement of the load bearing and also on the type of construction.
