FOUNDATION SYSTEMS


While Katana Foundations has become well known across Australia and New Zealand as a leading supplier and installer of screw piles, we work shoulder to shoulder with our clients, delivering best practice foundation and flooring solutions. Examples of what we offer supported by our screw piles are suspended ground floor slabs and raised floors.

Our story is built on providing you with the best screw piles in the business and better options for foundations and floors to get you out of the ground quicker. The name Katana comes from the Samurai sword – our piles accurately slice through underlying strata efficiently and are the latest patented screw pile technology. We look forward to working with you.

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 the market leader in use throughout Australia and New Zealand.
