GOLIATHTECH HELICAL SCREW PILES FOR DECKS:
Forget about concrete!
What is a helical pile? Simply put it is a foundation that resembles a large metal screw that is screwed into the ground using specialized equipment. The foundation for any project is the most important part and must be done correctly and be reliable.
At Your Deck Company we are so happy with the results and quality of the GoliathTech helical screw piles, that we are offering these screw piles standard on all of our projects we construct. We are tired of the issues with traditional concrete foundations and we simply demand something better for the quality of projects we undertake. As you will read below, we measured up all of the competitors that offer helical screw piles and GoliathTech was better in every key aspect.
Creating a solid foundation can sometimes be more difficult than it should be. In the past we used to dig a hole and drop in a sonotube and fill it with concrete and then figure out how to dispose of the excess soil. We dealt with standard issues such as frost heaving, project delays due to weather and several other issues that go along with concrete foundations. Your Deck Company was looking for a solution to these and other problems. We were looking for something better as well as more reliable for our projects.
We found our solution! Globally concrete foundations are being replaced with helical piles that are screwed into the ground. Helical piles are more efficient, cleaner, faster, stronger, and most importantly have a more accurate method for calculating and providing the necessary load bearing capacity. Additionally helical piles will not destroy the ground around your project, they are re-usable and will not be damaged by frost.
BUT ARE THE HELICAL MANUFACTURERS ALL THE SAME??? NO they are not.
Why is GoliathTech better? For Your Deck Company, this was the most important element in choosing which helical manufacturer to partner with. Your Deck Co. only wants to offer our clients the best available products at all times. Through our research and education we were able to clearly define why GoliathTech is simply the better foundation. We checked out all of the manufacturers of helical screw piles and clearly determined that GoliathTech is simply the better product.
- GoliathTech has an exclusive anchoring system for the attachment of the mounting head to the helical pile. Why is this important? All of the other manufacturers simply rest their project on top of the helical pile, the do no actually have any ability to resist uplift. Other manufacturers are fine for compression loads however if your project needs to be held down and resist uplift. GolliathTech meets and exceeds the building code for uplift (Tension) and compression loading. Additionally Decks do in fact require uplift (tension) resistance.
Some manufacturers actually try to weld the head on. This sounds ok, however there are 2 issues. First if your piles are galvanized then the weld point will not be galvanized after the weld is finished. This will lead to corrosion of that weld point. Simple zinc spray will not last long either. Second, many regions have actually made it illegal to weld galvanized steel do to health concerns.
- GoliathTech is the only pile company that offers standard at no extra cost factory filled THERMALLY INSULATED piles. All GoliathTech screw piles are filled at the factory with polyurethane insulation to protect against water and cold air going to the bottom of the foundation then freezing. Other companies offer this feature however it is added on site with a standard spray foam insulation.
- STRONGER STEEL…GoliathTech is the only manufacturer in Canada that is using 60 KSI steel piles. Other manufacturers are certified to 50KSI.
- Fully Galvanized System. GoliathTech offers a fully galvanized system from top to bottom to prevent deterioration over time due to corrosion.
- GoliathTech is the only screw pile company in Canada that is ISO 9001:2008 certified. Additionally all their products have engraved lot numbers to allow for traceability of their product.
