The simple answer is – yes! We can install our range of ground screws all year round, in spring, summer, autumn or winter, and come the sun, rain or snow.
All year round installation is possible due to two important factors.
Our range of professional and extendable ground screws from RADIX is engineered to support the impressive downward, load-bearing forces and withstand significant tensile forces, meaning we can drive them into hardpacked ground without compromising their integrity, including frozen ground in the depths of winter.
Secondly, installation in all weather conditions is possible using our professional equipment. Our electric-powered hand-turning machines, which deliver up to 4700 Nm of torque, are portable units that will install and extract screws from 76mm up to 114mm in diameter in the most demanding conditions, including winter and overcoming the frozen or hard-packed ground.
In some instances, customers have used this ability for ground screws to be installed all year round to their benefit, choosing to install projects in winter when the ground conditions are more solid and can withstand the arrival of multiple trucks or if needing to deploy a crane.
Where required, we can also complete a full site-specific survey at any time of the year to check that your project’s ground conditions are suitable.
If you would like some free advice for a project you’d like to get off the ground, in spring, summer, autumn or winter, get in touch, and we’ll be glad to help.
