How Many Screw Piles Do I Need For My Shed?

If you’re using 2×5 timbers the span between piles can be a minimum of 0.5m up to a maximum of 2m. Span may be increased by using bigger timbers or doubling up timbers. As an example, we would recommend a 6x4m garden house use 12 piles to provide a solid foundation, using 3 rows of 4 piles as per this diagram.

Why use UK Helix Screw Piles?

Highest Quality Steel

We make sure that material certificates are available if needed for the screw piles you purchase. This ensures that your piles are made from exactly the material indicated by the manufacturer and not, for example, from a weaker grade of steel.

Load and Measuring Guides

Reliable load tables should be available for the piles you intend to use, according to pile type. If necessary, the manufacturer must be able to provide guidance in measuring your screw pile requirements.

UK Made

There are Asian-made imported screw piles on the market, but the material and manufacturing quality of these products often does not come anywhere near the level of domestic screw piles we sell at UK Helix.
