What happens if there is a rock in the ground?

It’s always a good idea the pre-drill a pilot hole for your GroundPlug® TwisterTM footing with a drill of an equivalent diameter. If it’s a matter of a very large rock, you will need to pour some concrete to support the footing.

Alternatively you can dig out the rock before placing your GroundPlug® TwisterTM footing or push the footing placement slightly to one side.

 

Are the screws affected by frost?

We have many years of experience mounting our steel footings for the railway and highway industry, working in conditions of hard frost. The design of our products is adapted to cope with tough conditions and our GroundPlug® TwisterTM footings are especially developed for use in the Scandinavian climate.

Do you use the same calculations as for a concrete block?

The  GroundPlug® TwisterTM footings can carry the same loads as concrete footings. What you need to ensure is that you select the correct  GroundPlug® TwisterTM footing size for your project and soil conditions. Visit the shop to see the  GroundPlug® TwisterTM footing chart.

What about strength and durability?

Is the GroundPlug® Easy Mounting SystemTM a more expensive solution?

If you compare only the initial cost of pouring your own concrete footing or buying a premoulded concrete footing, the unit cost of a GroundPlug® TwisterTM is more expensive. But when you take into consideration significant time saved for installation and collection, that you don’t need a trailer for transport and the fact that GroundPlug® TwisterTM footings can easily be re-used, then the GroundPlug® Easy Mounting SystemTM is by far a cheaper and more sustainable and environment friendly solution than concrete footings.
