TWO FENCE FOUNDATION OPTIONS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY
Under every great SPECTO fence is a great foundation. Grand Slam Safety, LLC will not only design a fence to your needs but, also offers fence foundation options that provide a superior foundation for decades of hassle free use. This is athletic fence installation made easy and on your terms.
Each support pole and foul pole is anchored firmly into the ground by one of two methods.
(Many of our SPECTO Indoor Field Containment Systems can use existing structural supports instead of creating new foundation anchors.)
A helical pile is an extendable deep foundation system with helical bearing plates welded to a central steel shaft. Load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through these bearing plates. Segments or sections are joined with bolted couplings.
All helices, regardless of their diameter, have a standard 3″ pitch. Being a true helical shape, the helices do not auger into the soil but rather screw into it with minimal soil disturbance.
They install fast - which means your fence can be installed immediately. They also add lateral support on foul poles.
Grand Slam Safety offers exclusive subcontracted work through our partner FastFence for installation of helical piles.
Concrete foundations are easily installed by a contractor or your grounds crew. These foundations require steel and PVC sleeves to be embedded in the the concrete to accept the support poles which hold up the fence.
Concrete foundation foul pole installation can have either a sleeved or flanged foot, the sleeve offers faster install and removal, but does not allow any adjustment if foundation shifts. The flanged foot allows adjustment to ensure foul pole is plumb.
We recommend letting concrete fence foundation option cure 2-3 weeks before erecting your fencing system.
When support posts are removed, synthetic turf inserts can be place in each post hole.
Any Space. Any Sport.
