Using MVS© Screw Piles in (semi) permanent construction creates an extremely reliable foundation due to the large loadtaking capacity and tensile strength of the screw pile. This is determined primarily by the soil conditions. When turning the MVS© Screw Piles into a solid substrate until the desired depth/ strength has been reached, the loadtaking capacity is about 80 kN for the most commonly used standard screw pole, which is far superior to wooden pole. However, there is also the variable of the soil integrity above the anchor. (About the towing capacity can be stated that this is also very high), but also is dependable of the strength of the soil above the anchor. For example in storms or earthquakes, there will be more damage to the structure than to the MVS© Screw Piles themselves although the number of Screw Piles used as an anchoring system plays a part in the amount of damage that could be sustained.
