Helical piles, or screw piles as they are sometimes called, have a multitude of uses in industrial and commercial applications. For example, in the construction industry they are used to support new foundations or repair old ones. Additionally, helical piles can be installed in several ways and for various loads which allows them to be used in compression and tension applications.
Made of hollow steel tubes, helical piles stabilize structures by creating torque as they are installed into the soil. This is read as a pressure while being installed and verifies the amount of weight the pile can carry. This is one of the main reasons structural engineers approve of the helical piles for repair and new foundations.

What Are Helical Piles?
There are many aliases for helical piles. They are sometimes referred to as helical piers, helical anchors, screw piles, and helix anchors. Whatever you call them, these manufactured steel foundation systems have a central shaft with one or multiple bearing blades in a helical shape. The blades, sometimes referred to as flights, are welded to the central section.
Manufacturers use extension shafts to extend the pile so that it can bear weight and distribute it across the underlying soil. Additionally, the helical shape makes it easier to screw the piles into the earth to the desired depth and capacity. Brackets at the tops of the piles attach to structures, such as your foundation. They are often used in new construction or for foundation repair.
