Bollards and Gas Tanks: Ensuring Security with Screw Piles

Postech Screw Piles deliver robust, corrosion-resistant foundations for bollards and gas tanks, enhancing security with minimal environmental impact.

Optimal Foundation Solutions for Safety and Stability

In urban settings, bollards serve as critical protective barriers for ATM machines, sidewalk cafes, storefronts, and banks, shielding them from accidental or intentional vehicle impacts. The effectiveness of bollards heavily depends on the robustness of their foundation. Discover the advantages of Postech Screw Piles for a solid and reliable base.

The Importance of a Firm Foundation

Efficient and Cost-Effective

For bollards to provide the necessary protection, they need to be securely anchored. Postech Screw Piles offer the easiest way to establish a firm foundation for bollards, significantly reducing costs and installation time compared to traditional methods.

Versatility in Application

Bollards are not only crucial for protection but are also used to secure expensive equipment prone to damage, such as gas tanks. In these scenarios, our screw piles ensure that any impact is arrested before it reaches the vital equipment, thus averting potential safety hazards.

Strength and Durability

Being anchored deep into the ground, Postech Screw Piles leverage the inherent strength of the earth. The weight of the soil resting on their blades ensures that the bollards are immovable without specialized equipment. This setup provides a superior barrier against impacts, protecting both the bollards and any associated equipment.

Securing Gas Tanks with Screw Piles

A Reliable Alternative to Concrete

Gas tanks, often installed on concrete slabs, benefit greatly from the stability provided by screw piles. Postech Screw Piles are not only quicker and easier to install but also offer the same level of protection at a fraction of the cost. With the ability to install the screw piles and your gas tank on the same day, the waiting time associated with concrete setting is eliminated, as detailed on our screw piles vs concrete page.

Corrosion Resistance and Environmental Benefits

Postech Screw Piles are fully galvanized to protect against corrosion, ensuring a longer lifespan than traditional concrete bollards, which can deteriorate and need replacement within a few years. Moreover, the environmental impact of installation is minimal since there is no need for excavation. Our trained experts can install these screw piles quickly and efficiently, further saving time and reducing the cost of your project.
