Advantages of Helical Piles

For many applications helical units may offer significant advantages over other systems. Some of these include:

• Wide range of allowable loads
• Adaptability to a variety of installation angles
• Lower cost than driven or drilled piles – do not go as deep to reach the same capacity
• Ease and speed of installation
• Minimal support equipment
• Suitability for low-headroom and other limited-access areas
• Easy cutoffs
• No concrete-related delays
• Little or no dependence on weather
• Little or no earthwork and spoil material (a particular advantage at contaminated sites)
• Minimal vibration and noise
• Easily removed and reused in temporary applications
