Solar ground screw foundations and racking system

Solar Foundations & Racking Systems

Secure your solar investment on ground screws, the low-impact, eco-friendly foundation solution.

RADIX Ground Screws and RADIX Solar Racking Systems allow for the rapid installation of solar energy systems of all sizes, without damaging land or natural habitats, and avoiding costly delays.

There are several benefits to choosing ground screws for your solar foundations.

  • Increased support against wind and uplift
  • Easily removed at the end of the solar array’s lifespan
  • Install in hard-to-access and remote areas
  • Install over sloping, uneven and soft ground
  • Install any time of the year, in any weather
  • Install without the impact driving of piles
  • Save time and avoid costly delays

Securing your solar investment with greater load capacities of ground screw foundations

One of the significant strengths of RADIX Ground Screws over traditional pile foundations is the increased uplift and horizontal forces they withstand.

As illustrated here, the continuous helix of a ground screw creates greater friction underground than a traditional pile. This provides the capability for each ground screw to withstand vertical uplift forces exceeding 45kN in suitable ground conditions.

Solar panels naturally have a large surface area to capture the sun’s rays, but this acts like a sail in the wind. Ground screws protect your solar array by securely anchoring it underground, delivering the best foundation solution, especially in wind-exposed areas.
