What are Twistfix Ground Anchors?

Twistfix ground anchors are mini-helical-piles and soil nails that are hammered into the earth to support, stabilise or restrain a variety of permanent or temporary structures.­  Our hammer-in ground anchor systems are precision manufactured with lon­gi­tudi­nal helical blades that force the anchor to cork-screw into the earth as it is hammered. Installation is simple and quick with minimum disturbance, saving time and labour costs.

Where can Hammer-in Ground Anchor Systems be Used?

Helical screw piles and spiral ground anchors are highly versitile and, when 'locked-off' ro­tati­onal­ly,­ are able to support structures in both compression and in tension. Their use is particularly advantageous when anchoring in difficult to get to areas; for example at the back of terraced houses or in remote fields, where the cost of getting heavy plant and materials in position is difficult and price-prohibitive.­  Ground anchor systems are highly reliable and extremely cost effective to use. Ap­plications include:

  • providing foundation support to extensions (Helical-piling systems only)
  • supporting lightweight structures and decking
  • supporting platforms and signs alongside railways, waterways and highways.
  • anchoring a variety of articles securely to the ground, including sheds, benches, greenhouses, etc.
  • tethering with ropes, straps or chains to anchor barges, marquees, trailers, caravans, etc.
  • soil nailing, an earth retention technique used to stabilise steep sloping ground and to restrain movement of earth retaining walls

Cost Benefits of Hammer-in Helical Piles & Ground Anchors

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Immediate load-bearing capacity
  • No excavations or spoil to remove and cart away cart away
  • Lightweight driving equipment for ease of access in confined spaces
  • No downtime for curing of concrete
  • No downtime for low temperature conditions

Spiral ground anchors offer a fast, reliable, lightweight and cost effective alternative to con­ven­ti­onal structural supports.­  The hammer-driven helical piles and soil nails set up self rotation and screw into the ground by virtue of a promounced helix. The labour saving earth anchoring systems offer improved profit margins to contractors across the UK
