Helical Piles And Their Uses
What are helical piles?
Helical piles, sometimes referred to as screw piles, have many different commercial and industrial applications. They are used quite frequently in the construction industry, for instance. Their purposes include supporting new foundations and repairing old ones. These helical piles can also create permanent tension, which helps hold down high winds and seismic activity.
