FAQ : What is a Thermal Pile?

Invented in 2007, the thermal pile is an innovative technology that allows the pile to be insulated from the inside of the galvanized steel tube.

Similar to how we would insulate the walls of a house. This insulation system specially created by Postech Screw Piles is durable and permanent. This allows the inside of the pile to be kept at a temperature that prevents the formation of ice or frost at the base of the pile.

Postech Screw Piles offers you an optimal protection against movements caused by the freeze-thaw cycle.
