Helical Piles & Piers

Helical Piles Are An Ideal Solution for Deep Foundations, Cost-Effectiveness, and Minimal Environmental Impact.

What are Helical Piles?

CHANCE® Helical piles or anchors are a steel screw-in piling or anchoring system. Helical piles are comprised of helical bearing plates welded to a central steel shaft, which increases the bearing capacity. Helical piles have become the most trusted and popular technology for deep foundations under structures.

Helical Pile Foundation System gives you the performance of concrete without the drawbacks and liabilities of driven piles and drilled shafts.

Helical Pile Applications

There are many applications for Helical Piers and Piles, including:

  • Repairing failed or old foundations using time-tested engineering solutions
  • New construction supporting foundation grade beams, column bases, compression, tension and concrete slabs
  • Permanent battered piers to take lateral loads, including wind and seismic
  • Foundation support in tight access or inaccessible areas, primarily vertical axial compression loading
  • Permanent tension hold downs for wind and seismic loads
  • Retrofit foundations in existing structures where new loads are being added or under existing concrete slab
  • Foundations in noise-sensitive areas where vibration is a concern
  • Machinery/equipment foundations for immediate loading with increased capacity
  • Wind and seismic loading applications such as sound walls, billboards, communication towers, etc
  • Permanent or temporary foundation structural shoring, primarily vertical compression loading

Advantages of Helical Piles

Screw Piles or Helical Piling is the most cost-effective solution available. It eliminates the need for extra expenditures on soil mining and transportation. Helical Piling technology is used on all site conditions, making it ideal for residential and commercial construction projects.
Helical anchors are used in both tension and compression load applications and offer the versatility of the product and the installation equipment. They are ideal for sites with collapsible soils, expansive soils or soft clays. Compared to traditional foundation methods, using helical piles will keep your project and the environment protected.
