A screw pile is mainly used as a foundation for solar panel mounts.
It is costly and time-consuming to pour concrete on a large site and install the foundation for the panel mounts.
However, if these screw pile is driven in while rotating with heavy equipment, a strong foundation can be easily installed. (More than 50 screw piles can be driven in a day.)
Compared to a concrete foundation, the accuracy of the screw pile may be a little off because of the driving method. For this reason, the mounting holes for the upper flange of the screw pile are all long holes. The long holes also allow for fine adjustments during installation of the trestle, making it easy to work with.
The main use of screw piles is for outdoor solar panel installation.
In order to install solar panels, a frame must first be installed. If the frame is simply placed on the ground, it will be blown away by a typhoon or gust of wind. A sturdy foundation is indispensable for a strong installation of the frame.
This is where screw piles come in.
A mere pile will lose its stability by being shaken over and over again, but a screw pile will never fall out.
Compared to concrete, screw piles are easy to install, have a shorter construction period, and cost less, making them a highly advantageous component in outdoor solar panel installation projects.
The following is a description of the types and characteristics of screw piles.
The shape of screw piles should be selected according to the condition of the ground into which the screw piles are to be screwed.
All are hot-dip galvanized, so they will not rust or corrode even if used outdoors for long periods of time.
