  6. Slide 1.3 What is the Helipost? Corrosion and Abrasion Measures • Galvanized in accordance with ASTM-123 • Design corrosion rates conform with AASHTO & FHWA-RD-89-186 metal loss rates • Minimal abrasion in 50/6 soil (WSDOT) 4Fe+3O2+4H2+8H+= 2(Fe2O3•H2O)+2OH2O+8H+

  7. Slide 2.1 Concrete vs. Helipost The Problems with Concrete: Complicated - Labor intensive and equipment heavy, with multiple crews necessary to complete the installation process. Expensive – Inefficiencies due to the common logistical challenges, materials, and equipment used for concrete installation add both time and money to the project costs Slow – The curing period required before concrete piers and anchors are ready to accept the above-ground unit adds days or weeks to project schedules.

  9. Common Helipost Applications

  10. Slide 3.1 Common Helipost ApplicationsIntroduction: Helipost Applications • Sound walls and noise barriers • Solar panels (ground mounted) • Highway signs • Light posts • Security walls • Cell towers (mono pole) • Steel buildings • Billboards

  11. Slide 3.2 Common Helipost ApplicationsPerformance Means Multiple Applications • Helipost delivers 20 tons of axial load, therefore: • Supports walls up to 30 feet • Supports high-mast lights up to 100 feet • Supports large exit signs and cantilever lights • Supports mono-pole cell towers • Anchors even large solar panels

  12. Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process

  13. Slide 4.1 Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process Site Engineering Process Steps

  14. Slide 4.2 Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process Geotechnical and Soil Classification

  15. Slide 4.3 Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process Wind Load Analysis

  16. Slide 4.4 Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process Helipost Sizing Chart

  17. Helipost Bearing Capacity Slide 4.5 Overview of the Helipost Site Engineering Process

  18. Overview of the Helipost Installation Process

  19. Slide 5.1 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Installation Process • Attach pier to torque motor • Position for insertion • Plumb for post placement • Screw pier into ground • Mount post on pier cap • Lateral load test for safety

  20. Slide 5.2 Overview of the Helipost Installation ProcessAttach Helipost to Torque Drive

  21. Slide 5.3 Overview of the Helipost Installation ProcessPosition Helipost for Insertion

  22. Slide 5.4 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Torque Drive into Soil

  23. Slide 5.5 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Attach Helipost to Base Plate Assembly

  24. Slide 5.6 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Base Plate Attaching and Assembly Detail

  25. Slide 5.7 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Kip Load Test

  26. Slide 5.8 Overview of the Helipost Installation Process Repeat Installations

  27. Why You Need to Use the Helipost

  28. Slide 6.1 Why You Need to Use the Helipost Easy Installation • NO drill rigs, cranes, or concrete trucks • NO concrete curing delays • All-weather set-up and installation • Attaches to torque motor with only four bolts • Ideal in confined job sites

  29. Installs in loose sand to stiff clay Excels in ground water and caving soils Reduces traffic control requirements and project insurance Eliminates drill spoil removal Adjusts easily for both precise positioning and plumbness Torque readings verify soil conditions Slide 6.2 Why You Need to Use the HelipostCompelling Performance

  30. Eliminate the hassles of concrete Significantly reduce project costs Compress project schedules World-wide market applications Slide 6.3 Why You Need to Use the HelipostEfficiency and Flexibility Equals Profitability • Increase profitability • Leaner operations • Manage more concurrent projects • Present a greener profile • Win more business!
