GROUND SCREWS - BUILD FOUNDATIONS
BUILD SMART - WITH GROUND SCREWS
Our ground screw foundation system has received CodeMark™ and now certifies the ground screw and the foundation system, method of design, and installation. This brings a new, straightforward way of foundations to the market and significantly saves money and time building. CodeMark™ certification is the highest level of product compliance available in New Zealand.
Build with Ground Screws
If you have a construction project underway and want a simple solution for the foundation without having to dig or build a foundation, you should invest in building with ground screws. Building without casting is advantageous from both an economic and time point of view. It is especially advantageous to build with ground screws as our competent fitters install them for you, then you can start building immediately.
What can i build with a ground screw?
A ground screw can be used for both rebuilding or building new. Whether you want to build a tiny home, new holiday home, conservatory or a carport, ground screw is an optimal choice because it is a fast and flexible foundation. It also works to install the ground screw in hard ground where it can be difficult to dig down concrete plinths. Expanding without digging is time-saving. If you have to hire a construction company to dig foundations, every hour costs you have to wait for the foundations to harden. A plinth must be dug down to a frost-free depth to last a long time, which is both heavy and stressful, and time-consuming.
Building a Footprint Home
Building a Footprint home with a ground screw is as easy as it can ever be, given that a ground screw can be used regardless of the ground conditions prevailing. Many times plots for Footprint homes are a bit remote and the surface can vary. Even if it is inaccessible or steep, our machines can do the job and our fitters are used to working in all types of places.
CONSTRUCTION TIPS WHEN USING A GROUND SCREW
By choosing ground screws you get a secure anchorage no matter what you are going to build. It is a must for your project to last a long time. The ground is pre-drilled before we screw in the ground screw and we often evaluate the ground condition with tensile tests so that you get the best ground anchorage possible. Once we have assembled your ground screws you can start building immediately.
ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING WITH A GROUND SCREW
The advantages of building with a ground screw are many, it saves you time to build without casting or digging while it is a cheaper alternative compared to the traditional method. You always get a 25-year guarantee on ground screws from us and they do no damage to the ground where they are mounted, which is the case when you dig. In addition, ground screws are much better for the environment, concrete plinths emit 60% more carbon dioxide than ground screws.
When the ground screw is removed, minimal traces are left and you can also reuse them. Our ground screws are a quality product that is ISO 14001 certified and have an ISO 9001 certified installation process and of course, our ground screws are CE marked. In addition, we offer several applications for a special assembly, which means that the ground screws work for most types of construction projects. A ground screw works just like a concrete plinth but is easier to install and much more cost-effective. They can even be mounted through asphalt if desired.
All construction projects have some environmental impact and it is always good to choose materials and working methods that affect the environment as little as possible. With little environmental impact during construction, you can build a storage room, holiday home, or carport with a clear conscience. The environmental impact of ground screws is much lower than using concrete. This is due to the high emission of carbon dioxide during the production of cement.
ALWAYS KEEP THE ENVIRONMENT IN MIND WHEN BUILDING
Environmental friendliness is a hot topic today and there are several ways you can build in an environmentally friendly way. By using materials that can be reused and last a long time, you are also acting positively for the environment. We are proud of our ground screws, which have little environmental impact on construction projects compared to many other anchoring methods. The carbon dioxide emissions during production are far lower in comparison with the production of concrete products.
In addition, the ground screws are very durable and by constructing buildings that last a long time, you also save the environment. We provide at least a 25-year guarantee on all our ground screws. You also have the opportunity to both reuse and recycle them when you no longer need something you have previously built.
The concrete industry accounts for a large part of the carbon dioxide emissions in the world. Concrete is necessary in the construction of, for example, multi-story buildings and industrial buildings due to their size. However, many people use concrete unnecessarily when it comes to anchoring smaller projects such as tiny homes, cabins, balconies, and fences. Concrete is neither the most environmentally friendly nor the most cost-effective alternative for such projects.
CHOOSE A GROUND SCREW FOR LESS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT DURING CONSTRUCTION
Garden rooms are a very popular ancillary building today which can either sit on a cast concrete slab or anchoring points such as ground screws or concrete supports. However, you should know that a cast concrete slab contributes to 1,000% more carbon dioxide emissions than our ground screws do. There is no doubt that this is a very high figure.
When it comes to the concrete support, a well-used product in construction projects, it emits around 60% more carbon dioxide during manufacture than the ground screw. In addition, both concrete supports and concrete slabs require much more work than ground screws. The ground screws are screwed directly into the ground without you having to dig or transport large amounts of concrete. In addition, the installation of ground screws has minimal affect on your garden.
Today, we are used to the fact that what is good for the environment usually costs a little more, or takes longer. However, this is not the case when choosing a ground screws. It is an alternative that is faster to install and more environmentally friendly than the concrete alternatives.
ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS IS MORE THAN JUST WASTE SORTING AND RECYCLING
Swedes build a lot in their gardens in general, it can be about smaller balconies and storage but also larger garden rooms and carports. Even if an individual’s actions does not hugely affect the environment, it is still always best to choose the most environmentally friendly alternatives. With a ground screws, you can take on your construction projects without compromising the environment. In addition, we take care of the assembly for you and then you can start building immediately afterwards.
The ground screws do not leave a lot of soil behind, which means that less transport is required, for example in moving and disposing of excavated soil. Transport also has a significant impact on the environment, but you do not have to travel back and forth when choosing a ground screw from us. We have them with us when we arrive and since no excavation is required, we do not need to carry any soil back with us.
GROUND SCREWS ARE RECYCLABLE
Our ground screws are made of hot-dip galvanized steel that can be recycled. Hence, the material is not wasted when you are no longer in need of the screws. In addition, they leave very little damage to your garden, which is also positive for the vegetation and insects. If you plan to move in the future and want to be able to bring your storage or your conservatory, it is entirely possible with our ground screws. They can be unscrewed from the ground and reused, thanks to their high quality.
Sustainability is part of environmental work and by offering you high-quality ground screws, we contribute to a more sustainable future. It is wise to choose as much recyclable material as possible for all your construction projects to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
LOWEST ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WITH GROUND SCREW
Of all the options available for anchoring, ground screws have the lowest environmental impact, which makes them the best alternative. There are also many other advantages of building with a ground screw, such as that they can be mounted all year round, can withstand harsh climates and can also be installed through asphalt, stone and other ground conditions where excavation can be difficult. Ground screws are CE-marked and ISO-certified so you can feel safe when using them.
Thanks to the many advantages of ground screws, there is no reason to burden the environment with concrete unnecessarily. Burial and casting of concrete takes a long time and at the same time it is stressful for the body. Save money and time while acting positively for the environment by choosing a ground screws.
