Can I use Spirafix for a timber building and decking project?

Monday 24th September 2018

As part of our education strategy we've include here one of our most frequently asked questions -can I use Spirafix for a timber building or decking project? We have had our spiral anchors tested for this application and they are suitable. Spirafix ground anchors will sustain at least the same load when being pushed into the ground as when be pulled out. However, the requirement for a foundation application is that any building load must be sustained over a long period of time. This will cover ground conditions at their weakest, which is during prolonged wet weather. Also clays will have surface heave and shrinkage during these climatic changes. This means that any anchor being used needs to be de-rated for…

Do I need to prepare the ground before I install Spirafix Ground Anchors?

Monday 3rd September 2018

A great question and one we get asked frequently. No you don't need to prepare the ground before you start your install. Spirafix are designed to cope with hard ground conditions and drive down into position on their own helix. They are installed via impact, so they are a 'hammer in' anchor. They are NOT twisted into position, so normally a lump hammer (for smaller anchors), sledge hammer (medium sized anchors) or power tool can be used. Spirafix can be installed down through tarmac by creating a small pilot hole first and then driving the anchor down through the pilot hole. If you need to install in concrete then a core will need to be drilled out. We advise you…
