SCREW PILE SYSTEMS


We go the extra mile when estimating, supplying and installing your screw piles so that you have peace of mind your foundation is constructed on-time and certified to Engineering specifications

After 26,000 jobs and 1.5 million screw pile installations, we have established a reputation as Australia’s most reliable screw pile supplier for our transparency, performance, and technical expertise.

Our name comes from the Japanese Samurai sword. Like a ‘Katana’, our curved twin-fin blade ‘slices’ through underlying strata leaving no spoil to remove. And our patented threaded square pile head eliminates hot works on site and supports slab on ground and raised floor systems.

We look forward to working with you.

What are Screw Piles?

Screw Piles are a far more efficient foundation system than concrete. Installation is environmentally responsible, quicker, vibrationless and suitable for all geotechnical conditions. Our Twin-Fin screw pile is manufactured in Australia using Australian made 400+ high grade tensile steel.

Our Expertise

Our knowledge of civil engineering, building codes of practice, and soil conditions means we can provide you with a cost effective foundation solution. From site mark-up to installation, testing, and certification, we make screw piles easy.

MOBILE INSTALLATION REPORTING TECHNOLOGYRisk Assessment and Certification

Kiban (Japanese for ‘Foundation’ and pronounced kee-bahn) is the name of our new mobile installation reporting application. The technology allows installers to enter job information and images on site using a mobile device, as well as view structural engineering plans and geotechnical reports. The paperless system captures all the job information required to evaluate and certify your screw pile installation.

FOUNDATION INSTALLATIONSTechnical Specialists

As the first trade on site, it is imperative that our installation process is carried out with the utmost of accuracy and compliance. There can be no compromises when it comes to the way in which screw piles are installed.

RAPID UPLIFT TESTINGOn-Site Capabilities

Our onsite rapid uplift testing process is simple, effective and accurate. The test is used to ensure that the minimum required uplift capacity is achieved when specified, as well as using a calculation method to determine whether the pile will satisfy the nominated kN in compression.

RELIABLE PARTNERIndustry Relationships

Strong relationships with structural engineering and geotechnical investigation services, along with our experience, ensures our piling projects are superior, cost-effective and compliant.

CODEMARK QUALITY ASSURANCEThird-party Certification

CodeMark is a third-party certification scheme for building products and systems, managed by Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB). CodeMark is the guarantee that our screw piles and processes are industry best practice and comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
