USING GROUND SCREWS FOR TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

FAST & STRONG FOUNDATIONS FOR TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Helical ground screws are an excellent choice for rail and road infrastructure and street furniture. Their quick and simple, all-weather installation helps to keep projects on track and un-delayed by adverse weather. A single ground screw can provide the same foundational support as one cubic metre of concrete, allowing for the erection of signage and refuges in a single day, as opposed to over several. Our rapid install times can help to keep track and road closures to a minimum, ensuring passenger timetables have reduced delays.

Helical ground screws can be installed at any time of year, whatever the weather and are load bearing straight after install. They also excel in creating a level foundation on sloped, uneven or hard to reach sites, with a longevity of over 75 years.

USE GROUND SCREW FOUNDATIONS FOR YOUR TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE:

HIGHWAY TRAFFIC PROJECTS

Perfect for signage, barriers, speed indicators, gantries, traffic monitoring equipment and advanced direction signage.

ROAD TRAFFIC PROJECTS

Quickly and securely install traffic lights, solar speed signage, speed cameras and bus stop shelters with no need for excavations or concrete.

TRACKSIDE RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE

Ground screws can be used to quickly provide foundations for cable support posts, cabinets, refuges, signal posts and modular platform extensions, minimising track closure time.

OFF-TRACK RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE

Ground screws make great foundations for station shelters, benches, lights, signs and handrails with no need for excavations.

SITE SECURITY & ILLUMINATION

Rapidly install hoardings and security fences, along with uprights for CCTV and illumination, both on site and within material storage areas.

TEMPORARY BUILDINGS

Secure temporary foundations for site offices and materials storage on larger long term infrastructure projects.

Helical ground screws can be installed at any time of year, whatever the weather. They are also load bearing straight after install, helping to keep your project on track and re-opening your rail or road more quickly, reducing waiting times or delays. Ground screws excel in creating a level foundation on sloped, uneven or hard to reach sites and make an excellent choice for the installation of lighting and other off track/off road equipment. With a longevity or over 75 years, they provide a durable foundation without the need to excavate and lay concrete.

Ground screws are also more environmentally friendly than traditional concrete foundations. Manufactured in steel and galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 standards, they have a long life span and lower carbon footprint.
