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 install help 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, this allows for erection of signage and refuges in a single day, as opposed to over several. Helping to keep track and road closures to a minimum and ensure passenger timetables have minimal delays

Helical ground screws can be installed any time of year whatever the weather and are load bearing straight after install helping to keep your project on track. Ground screws 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 any time of year whatever the weather and are load bearing straight after install helping to keep your project on track and re-open 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, with a longevity of over 75 years, this makes them excellent for installing lighting and other off track/off road equipment without the need to excavate a flat surface for a concrete pad.

Ground screws are also more environmentally friendly than traditional concrete foundations, made from steel and manufactured in the UK helping to keep their carbon footprint low. They’re also galvanised to  BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 standards, giving them a long life.
