Perfect for buildings, transport infrastructure and solar plants.

Quick to install with minimal disruption, great for uneven sloped sites or wooded areas.


Ground Screws and Helical Piles are foundation systems that are fast to install and create a strong foundation for many building applications. Their environmental and site impact is also much lower than traditional concrete foundations, making them great for builds looking to be more environmentally sustainable.

Our galvanised steel helical ground screws feature strong helical threading that bores into the ground securely, with a head that can fit a range of pre-made and custom designed fitting and flanges and can withstand over 75kN of loading point pressure per screw.

Our steel helical ground screws are ready to go immediately after installation; with no concrete there is no drying time and your foundations can take load straight away.

The Yard: Outdoor Stage at Charleston House

Red Leaf Ground Screws were contacted by PUP Architects to provide temporary foundations for a wooden outdoor stage erection at the historic site of Charleston House in East Sussex.

The erection of the stage took 5 days with a small team, our team worked quickly and efficiently to install four screws for the stage frame to sit on within the first day.

PUP Architects’ choice to use ground screws for their project allowed them to create a fully recyclable stage. When the stage is no longer required at The Yard, all parts including the foundations will be removed, leaving very little indication that the stage had been there at all.
