On reinforced footing or stem walls, the new construction HELICAL PIER Foundation Systems anchors are usually placed every 8 to 10 feet depending upon the load of the structure and the bearing strength of the soil.
A two man crew with a skid loader can place over 50 anchors ready for loading in less than one day. Anchors rated by the building codes for working loads of 10 to 20 tons are typical.
