As a contractor or DIY (do it yourselfer) you can appreciate anything that makes the building process faster and more efficient.
One minor difference but significant difference between Postech Thermal Piles and Groundhog style anchors is that your typical ground anchor is designed to be installed to grade. The problem is that grade varies in height according to slope – this translates to a requirement to cut posts at varying heights to level your foundation.
Postech Thermal Piles feature a larger diameter shaft and a longer 10′ pile, this means we can install piles up to 18″ above grade without compromising lateral support or risking that the helical is above the frost line (note: the frost line is up to 8′ in Winnipeg). Using a laser level Postech’s professional installers can install each pile to the exact height you require or at minimum to the exact same height – this means you can cut each post the exact same height or even put your beam directly on the piles.
Like some other ground anchors on the market, Postech Thermal Piles feature adjustable head adapters to help you further fine tune your foundation’s level.
