HOW CAN ABC ANCHORS HELP YOU?
Offering the complete Screw Pile solution, from design through to installation
Screw Piles and Installation Equipment
ABC Anchors offers a range of screw piles and installation equipment to suit many applications.
Why Choose Us?
Success in pile installation depends on selection of the correct piles plus use of the extensive range of torque heads available from Autoguide Equipment. In many situations the higher initial cost of a screw pile is more than offset by much faster installation, no concrete (or very little) and no spoil disposal.
To fully utilise the time savings it is essential that the installation equipment is easy to use, fast in operation, reliable and, when used correctly, safe. Autoguide’s experience in developing new methods of torque head mounting and innovative combinations of motors and gearboxes gives pile installers the best possible solutions.
Advantages of Screw Piles
Speed of installation – often 10 minutes per pile up to 6 meters long
No wet trades – concrete is not used except for form ground beams or grout
Piles can accept full load immediately after installation
Monitoring of installation torque accurately indicates capacity – problems will show up on installation
As screw piles can be removed very easily they are well suited to temporary uses
Anchors can be supplied galvanised or fitted with cathodic protection to combat corrosion
Screw anchors can be installed at angles up to 45 degrees from vertical to suit the load
A wide range of terminations are available to suit tension, compression and combination loads
The pile is guaranteed by ABC Anchors for the manufacture and design strength. The final guarantee is in conjunction with the installers pile log on actual installation torque at each pile position.
The pile loadings are presented by the structural engineers to ABC Anchors for installation recommendation. With the information from the full ground investigation works the pile design can be deduced with installation criteria which must be met to ensure the pile can resist the required safe working load.
