solar ground screw foundations and racking systems

Solar foundations and racking systems

Our efficient ground screw foundations and robust racking systems allow for the rapid installation of solar arrays of all sizes, avoiding costly delays, reducing programme lengths, and minimising environmental impact.

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. Avoid costly delays.

Securing your solar investments with the 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 below, 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.
