The Screwpile Australia Lightpole Foundation System is a simple foundation solution for tapered steel light poles replacing messy slow and expensive concrete bored piles. Significant time and cost savings are the major advantages.
Screwpile Australia's Steel Screw-in Foundation System is by far the quickest method of installing engineered foundations and allows for immediate lightpole erection as there is no concrete curing time holding up further works. The entire process is reduced to just screwing in a foundation, excavating a small power cable access trench, feeding the power cable through the cable slot provided, lifting up the pole and bolt connecting it to the screwpile, its that easy.
Based on the following information:
A single screwpile foundation solution is available for monopoles up to 25 metres with a bending moment of up to 150kNm. Multiple configurations are available for mono and lattice towers up to 50 metres regardless of loads. In high wind regions such as cyclonic areas grouped screwpile configurations may be appropriate.
Our lightpole foundation products are hot dipped galvanised for protection against the ambient elements providing for the same design life as . of 35 year design life the same as the ligh pole, however design life can be extended where required.
Unlike other products, Screwpile Australia’s lightpole screw-in steel foundation system does not use shallow vertical fin plates to transfer the horizontal loads into the ground or to stiffen the piles shaft. Screwpile Australia’s engineers believe the practice of relying on shallow vertical fins to structurally support the foundation loads is flawed for the following reasons:
