Rock-Solid Foundations for Safety Bollards

Protect your property and ensure your critical safety equipment never shifts or moves with a safety bollard foundation that's faster, easier, and more durable


A Frost-Resistant Foundation Without Digging, Dirtwork, or Drilling

Ever seen a safety bollard that's been pushed upwards or is leaning to the side? That's our Winnipeg soil and climate at work. Freezing temperatures combined with saturated clay-heavy substrate can wreak havoc on traditional bollard foundations. The solution?
Skip the headache, choose helical piles for your safety bollard foundations in Winnipeg. Here's some of the reasons contractors are switching to a helical solution...

    Faster and more economical than other solutions, doesn't require bore-holing or excavation
    Zero spoils or tailings to haul away, ideal for narrow-access sites
    Tough lateral load support provides durable defense against impact forces
    Unique helical pile design anchors below frost line and protects against any movement

How Helical Foundations Work For Safety Bollards

Not familiar with helical piles? You're not alone! Even though the technology has existed nearly two centuries, it's still a kind of "hidden gem" alternative to concrete or driven piles. They're ideal for overcoming Winnipeg soils, which are prone to frost-heave under lightweight structures like safety bollards.

  • Helix Plate Provides Big Support

    The unique design of the helix plate on a helical pile enables it to turn into the ground smoothly and without soil disturbance, while offering superb defence against movement or frost

  • Adapters Make It Easy To Use

    Our easy-to-use adjustable adapters attach to the top of the helical pile and make it a breeze to transition to your safety bollard

  • Unrivalled Durability

    Resistant to movement, corrosion, poor soils, and damage from frost, your helical pile foundation will happily hold your safety bollards for many years

Frequently Asked Questions About Safety Bollard Foundations in Winnipeg

Have questions about securing solid support for your safety bollard in Winnipeg or throughout Manitoba? You've come to the right place - and don't forget to contact our team if you can't find your answer below!

Why should I use helical piles for safety bollards?

Fast and non-invasive installation, zero excavation, ultra-strong, compact, perfect for tight spaces. Those are just a sampling of the reasons you'd want to use helical piles for your safety bollards. They resist soil movement better than concrete and can be installed in a few hours.

Are helical piles good for high-traffic areas?

Yes! In fact, they're perfect for installing safety bollards in high-traffic areas. Quick installations minimise disruption to your traffic flow, and the incredible strength of a helical pile ensures that your bollards can withstand impacts as designed. Plus, you can start building immediately after we're finished.

Is a helical pile cheaper than concrete?

The initial cost of helical piles may be higher than concrete for a safety bollard, but there's more to consider when calculating cost-efficiency. Don't forget about the speed, safety, versatility, durability, performance, and no-mess, that helical piles offer. Overall, we believe it's a more economical option.

How do helical piles manage harsh weather?

Completely fine! Our helical piles are available with a galvanized coating, making them resistant to the harsh weather and climate we face in Manitoba. They're more than capable of withstanding freeze-thaw cycles, floods, droughts, and even fire (within reason, of course).

Are helical piles really more eco-friendly?

Yes! A big advantage of helical piles is that their installation causes no soil displacement or disturbance to the area. Ideal for use in areas where environmental preservation is key. Additionally, they can be removed without a trace and complete recycled or even reused after inspection.

How much does a helical pile foundation cost?

The cost of your helical pile foundation ultimately depends on a range of factors including soil conditions, size of project, location, difficulty, and so on. To get an accurate quote for your helical foundation, simply get in touch with our team!
