How Helical Anchors Work
Helical anchors are screwed into place. The load capacity of these anchors is proportional to the torque required during installation. This relationship is in accordance with the equation Qt = kT where Qt is the total tensile resistance, k is an empirical constant and T is the installation torque. Our helical anchors are installed either for small loads in short sections or for larger loads in long continuous lengths.
