Helical piles, also known as helical piers, are constructed using steel shafts with helical flights. Whether for light or heavy loads, Hayward Baker is available to assist you with this technique.

Common Uses

  • Provide structural support
  • Underpin foundations

Technical Details

The shafts are advanced to bearing depth by twisting them into the soil while monitoring torque to estimate the pile capacity. A detailed understanding of the subsurface conditions is necessary to properly interpret the torque conversion. After reaching design capacity, the tops of the shafts are connected to the structure's foundation.
