CLEAR, SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD
We believe that clear communication with our clients is vital to a successful project and a continuing business. When discussing your structural problems we will ask lots of questions and listen carefully. In return, you will get straightforward advice, information, and services tailored directly to your needs.
Underpinning issues can often take place beneath buildings both old and new. The course of time may cause structures to shift and, more often than not, the poor quality of the ground beneath the building is the reason. Underpinning techniques are the solution.
Our experience with underpinning solutions enables us to solve more complicated foundation problems. When project ground conditions are so poor that traditional underpinning is not possible we have the underpinning technique to meet this challenge. Our team of seasoned experts use the industry’s best products combined with professional engineering to stabilize defective foundations and structures.
Speeler Companies underpinning specialists have the knowledge and equipment to provide the best solutions for the most challenging underpinning projects. Feel free to ask our team of professionals for advice and more in-depth information regarding the underpinning options available and find the one that best suits your project.
A helical anchor/pile is a segmented deep foundation system with helical bearing plates welded to a central steel shaft. Load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through these bearing plates. Central steel shafts are available in either Type SS (Square Shaft) series or Type RS (Round Shaft) series. The Type SS series are available in 1-1/4″ to 2-1/4″ square sizes. The Type RS series are available in 2-7/8″ to 4-1/2″ diameter sizes. Type SS-RS combinations are also available for compression applications in soil conditions where dense/hard soils must be penetrated with softer/loose soils above the bearing strata. The Helical Pulldown® Micropile series is also used in applications similar to those requiring the use of the Type SS-RS combinations.
QUALITY HELICAL PRODUCTS
Segments or sections are joined with bolted couplings. Installation depth is limited only by soil density and practicality based on economics. A helical bearing plate or helix is one pitch of a screw thread. All helices, regardless of their diameter, have a standard 3″ pitch. Being a true helical shape, the helices do not auger into the soil but rather screw into it with minimal soil disturbance. Helical plates are spaced at distances far enough apart that they function independently as individual bearing elements; consequently, the capacity of a particular helix on a helical anchor/pile shaft is not influenced by the helix above or below it.
