Our crews are able to dispatch at a moment's notice using company-owned equipment. Our trucks and pull testing hardware is maintained, calibrated and ready for deployment. With in-house inventory of single, double and triple-blade anchors, our crews are equipped to respond to urgent needs, whether the site be related to oilfield operations, a commercial job site or a residential lot.
Oil and Gas Exploration crews generally use the term "Anchor" to describe the hardware we install (steel shaft with pitched helical plates); this application is intended to resist uplift/tension forces that would otherwise overturn vertical structures or allow uncontrolled release of product in high pressure piping. Our helical anchors are installed and tested to ensure compliance with engineering directives and promote personal safety of the work environment. We leave each site in a safer condition than when we first arrived.
In commercial and residential construction, the term helical "piles" is generally used interchangeably with helical piers, screw piles, and helical anchors. Whether used for new construction, underpin existing structural foundations or level structures that may have shifted/settled, the helical piles we furnish and install are part of the engineered deep foundation system to carry sufficient tension and compression loads.
While Anchor Piles and Piers are often used interchangeably, Piers typically involve concrete or masonry in addition to helical anchors as part of the foundation of a structure. In Residential construction, the helical pier would be installed with an accessory at a specified height to allow tie in of the reinforced steel bar grid (rebar), providing strength for compression and tension loads.
