2-1/4 inch Square Bar Helical Anchor

Earth Contact Products (ECP) is the leading U.S. manufacturer of 2-1/4 inch square bar helical anchors. Our Engineering, Design and Production capabilities of helical anchors, piles and helical have become the standard in the industry. These helical anchors, due to their extreme capacity are generally used in heavy commercial applications to tiebacks and heavy guy wire loads.

ECP offers 2-1/4 inch RCSB Helical Anchors for:

  • Solar Panels
  • Shoring
  • Tensioning
  • Guy Anchors
  • New Construction
  • Tiebacks
  • Bowed Walls
  • Tie Downs
  Helical Anchors

ECP 2-1/4 inch helical anchors, also known as screw piles, screw anchors and helical piers are ideal for applications where there is a need to resist both tension and axial compressive forces. Examples of these include expansive clay soils, metal buildings, telecommunication towers and canopies. 2-1/4 inch RCSB helical anchors are easy to install, can be installed in limited spaces and can be loaded or tested immediately upon installation making them unique to the deep foundation industry.

The designer should select a product that provides adequate additional torsional
capacity for the specific project and soil conditions.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 
The capacities listed for Axial Compression, Tension and Torsion in Table 2 are mechanical ratings.  One must understand that the actual installed load capacities for the product are dependent upon the actual soil conditions on a specific job site.  The shaft “Useable Torsional Strengths” given here are the maximum values that should be applied to the product.  Furthermore, these torsional ratings assume homogeneous soil conditions and proper alignment of the drive motor to the shaft.  In homogeneous soils it might be possible to achieve up to 95% or more of the “Useable Torsional Strength” shown in Table 2.  In obstruction-laden soils, torsion spikes experienced by the shaft may cause impact fractures of the couplings or other components.  Where impact loading is expected, reduce shaft torsion by 30% or more from “Useable Torsional Strength” depending upon site soil conditions to reduce chance of fracture or damage.  Another advantage of selecting a torsional rating below the values shown in Table 2 is that one may be able to drive the pile slightly deeper after the torsional requirements have been met, thus eliminating the need to cut the pile shaft in the field.
The load transfer attachment capacity must be verified for the design.  Standard attachments and ratings are shown on the following pages.  Special configurations to fit your project can be fabricated to your specifications upon request.
