Can helical screw piles be installed into concrete or asphalt?
Unfortunately the answer is no, they won’t pass through concrete or asphalt. However, with a quick cut saw outfitted with a concrete or asphalt blade and a few minutes, you can cut out a piece of concrete or asphalt just large enough to allow the installation of a helical screw pile.
The picture above includes three helical screw piles installed as ground anchors which will keep a large but very light structure from lifting in strong winds. Threaded wind-lift secure adapters were bolted into the piles while adjustable flat-head adapters allow for support at just the right height. Postech Winnipeg’s professional installers cut holes in the 5 inch thick concrete parking lot using a concrete quick saw.
