USING GROUND SCREWS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY PROJECT, PARK OR PLAYGROUND

TEMPORARY FOUNDATIONS FOR COMMUNITY PROJECTS, PARKS & PLAYGROUNDS

Helical ground screws require no concrete and are fast to install, making them a great choice for children’s playground, parks or other community projects such as buildings or street furniture and signage.

We use RADIX professional ground screws for all installations, galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 giving them a long life expectancy, they provide a high load bearing capacity perfect for structures such as play equipment, lighting, community buildings and street furniture.

There are numerous applications for helical ground screws within community project.

USE GROUND SCREWS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY PROJECT FOR:

COMMUNITY BUILDINGS

Great for temporary and permanent community buildings such as information centres, storage buildings, toilets or washing facilities.

PARK FURNITURE & SIGNAGE

Strong, secure and long lasting foundations for benches, bins, signs, fencing, installed with no for excavations for concrete pads.

SHELTERS & VIEWING PLATFORMS

Ground screws can be installed on sloped and uneven surfaces, great for trail shelters, or raised viewing platforms on steep slopes.

SITE SECURITY & ILLUMINATION

Ground screws can be used for site fencing and hoardings, long with providing foundations for on-site CCTV and illumination.

PLAY & SPORTS EQUIPMENT

Secure non impactful foundations for play equipment and sports equipment, such as goals, nets and scoring signage.

SITE ENTRY & PARKING

Install parking metres, turnstiles or parking attendant booths without the need for excavations or concrete.

Helical ground screws have a low impact on the surrounding area, unlike concrete foundations, they won’t disturb tree roots or require any digging around the site. This makes them perfect for buildings within wooded parks, such as toilet blocks, visitor centres or chalets where local flora and fauna need to remain as undisturbed as possible.

The removal of a need for a concrete pad, make ground screws an obvious choice for equipment within children’s play areas, freeing up the area surrounding the equipment for soft fall surfaces. Their design allows them to hold up to 75kN of load on a single screw, ensuring equipment is supported adequately when in use. Ground screws also make great foundations for sporting equipment, score boards and seating areas.
