Helical pier systems are known as being a cost-effective solution for contractors and engineers who want an alternative to traditional foundation construction methods. The helical pier systems, underpinning and tie-back systems from Patriot Foundation Systems provide that and more to foundation construction professionals in the residential, commercial, industrial, utility, marine and solar industries.
When used as boat mooring systems, our piles and anchors provide advantages over traditional mooring systems to professionals of all types, including:
Costs to contractors are typically lower, and profits are usually higher when helical pier systems are used for a number of reasons. Site preparation is less expensive, because special equipment is not needed. Helix mooring system installations are much less dependent on favorable weather and can be installed in wet conditions and freezing temperatures. Additionally, labor costs are cut considerably when these systems are used, because they are quickly and easily installed and load bearing immediately after installation.
The superior strength of helix anchors make them 4-5 times stronger than traditional mooring anchors. Our Patriot Foundation Systems helix anchor holding power is so strong that insurance companies will often give incentives to boat owners who use these types of helical moorings. In addition, some harbors are now requiring boats 25 feet or more to use helix anchors.
The environmental advantages of helix boat mooring systems from Patriot Foundation Systems make them the preferred mooring system for anyone in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and beyond who is interested in protecting the environment. Because anchors in helical pile systems don’t drag on the bottom of the water like traditional anchors tend to do, some governmental agencies recommend them for use in environmentally sensitive areas. In addition, helix systems are removable and recyclable. To learn more about the benefits of this system or to get a quote on your project, contact us today.
