What features should be required from a good screw pile?
Material

Make sure that material certificates are available if needed for the piles you purchase. This ensures that your piles are made from exactly the material indicated by the manufacturer – and not, for example, from a weaker grade of steel or from recycled steel.

Load tables and measuring guides
Reliable load tables should be available for the piles you intend to use, according to pile type. If necessary, the manufacturer must be able to provide guidance in measuring your screw pile requirements.
Country of origin
There are imported screw piles imported from overseas manufacturers that may look like decent piles, but often don’t come anywhere near the level of quality standards we use with our products.
