Helical foundation piles

The techno Metal Post helical pile is a giant metal screw that is installed by a certified technician using proprietary hydraulic machinery. The pile is screwed into the ground until the desired bearing capacity is achieved

This foundation screw pile guarantees that your building or structure is anchored on a solid base, whether it be for something as simple as a clothesline pole or as complex as a multiple story home. Techno Metal Posts can support up to 50,000 pounds per pile!

Our in-house engineering team can determine which type of pier is appropriate for your project.

The « techno Metal Post » helical pile is constructed with a hollow steel tube and a thick helix made of high quality steel.

The exclusive green polyethylene sleeve protects the pier from soil movement due to frost heaving.

In an era where many companies choose to source their raw materials from Asia, our team is committed to the purchasing of North American steel and manufacturing the piles locally in Quebec.

For certain applications, our screw piles may be protected against corrosion with  our exclusive “techno Protection”  system that we install at the same time as the piles.

Techno Protection is a cathodic protection system that protects the steel from corrosion in the harsh soils and environments.

Techno Metal Posts have one of the industry's best guarantee.

Our certified installers guarantee the installation of every Techno Metal Post.

The installation and long term performance of each pile is critical. All Techno Metal Post installers undergo rigorous theoretical and practical training. This training allows us to guarantee the work and your peace of mind...

Techno Metal Post designs and manufactures all of the installation equipment in-house by to assure quality and long term performance.

Techno Metal Posts eliminate the unknowns

.

Techno Metal Post’s engineering team has developed a fool-proof technology that measures the final bearing capacity of each pile during installation. The field measurements for every pile installed in the ground are analyzed and stamped by Techno Metal Post’s staff engineers. This workflow process provides indisputable engineering data to clients, contractors and building departments.

Our Techno Metal Posts are manufactured using structural steel according to ASTM A500 grade C, CAN/CSA-G40.21-98 and CSA W47.1 standards.

They can be hot-dip galvanized according to CSA-G164M-92, i.e. a minimum of 610 g/m².

They were load tested according to ASTM-D1143 and ASTM-D3689 standards in a variety of soil types around the world.

Bearing capacity is confirmed on site using the installation machinery and in situ test benches when required.

Our posts are designed to resist axial and lateral strains calculated by applying a safety factor.  Their helical design maximizes the load bearing capacity of soil.
