Track Screw Ltd is a unique business offering supply of Track Screw anchors
and hire of unique installation equipment.
These anchors are the new emerging conical helix style screw foundations that have been
recently requested by LUL on a number of new
infrastructure projects and are currently under consideration by NWR for small trackside
A single Track Screw can replace a cubic metre of concrete, can be installed in less than 10 minutes and can be loaded immediately!
With its speed of installation reducing time on site, lower element weights reducing manual handling risks and the complete removal of curing times, Track Screw installations make a significant cost saving on any project compared to traditional concrete foundations.
Track Screw is a UK trade name for conical helix screw anchors, not to be confused with helical piles or parallel screw piles. They are manufactured by number of suppliers worldwide, however, they were first designed & manufactured in Germany.
Track Screw type products have been in use for more than 30 years in Europe and around 10 year in the UK, over 10,000 on the UK Highways Network and more than 100,000 used on UK solar farms. Track Screw anchors are available in a selection of finish grades, providing lifespans of up to 100 years* in any ground conditions.
Track Screw Ltd (TSL) is not an installation company, we can supply Track Screw anchors and hire our unique installation equipment. TSL also train & certify your installers, provide assistance with screw selection at tender stage, once orders are received we can complete full calculations, compliance submissions for both LUL (CDS) & NWR (F001, F002 & F003) and complete on-site screw testing, alternatively, we can hire testing kits and train operators in their use.
Track Screws have now been approved and install in live trackside locations on both the NWR and LUL networks. The speed and simplicity of the installation process and product have provided significant savings and this can be demonstrated by the various case studies that are available for download.
