WHEN IS IT BETTER TO USE GROUND SCREW FOUNDATION FOR HOUSE
The foundation on ground screws is an excellent solution for low-rise construction. Because of their versatility, ease of installation and the ability to solve problems of topography and soil, ground screws are increasingly being wide used to install foundations for SIP panel houses, wooden and metal frame houses, as well as for gas concrete houses, garden houses, saunas, bath houses, gates and hydraulic structures.
Ground screw is a steel pipe with a blade of a certain configuration. They have a high bearing capacity. What is achieved by winding along the entire length of the pile shaft. When screwing it up the soil is not loosened, but rather compacted with each successive turn. This guarantees the stability and safety of the structure.
When installing the pile foundation, the site remains intact and no waste remains after the installation. Ground screws are a very technological solution, because:
- construction of the object on piles can be started immediately after their installation;
- difficult terrain, slope and water-saturated ground for the screw foundation is not a problem;
- screwing is possible both by machine and by hand;
- in the future, it is possible to increase the built-up area by installing additional piles.
Ground screws have a long service life when produced, installed and operated properly.
