Techno Metal Post provide an expert service, installing helical piles and screw piles set for specific bearing capacity for structures
Helical piles are ideal for setting a firm base for your structures, but what are they?
What are helical piles?
A Techno Metal Post helical pile (or screw pile) is a giant metal screw that is installed in the ground by a certified technician until the exact bearing capacity for your structure is reached. They are screwed into the ground using proprietary machinery specifically designed by our engineers to provide you with an accurate measurement which is tested and validated right on site, ensuring the foundation of your structure is solid and secure. Techno Metal Post’s screw piles are manufactured in North America from structural steel ASTM A500 Grade C, Can/CBA-GHD.21-98. Our posts are designed, engineered, and tested to the highest standards to ensure they withstand the toughest loads and conditions possible. Worried about Clay Heave? We have solved that problem with a heavy-duty polyethylene sleeve that has been specially designed to encase the post and prevent it from being affected by ground movement. With Techno Metal Post your projects and/or structures are completely supported in a cost-effective, easy-to-install manner. Our screw piles are perfect for all kind of applications;
Houses, House extensions, all types of Offsite Homes and Buildings, Apartment Blocks, School Classrooms and School Buildings.
