  1. Capacities include a scheduled loss in steel thickness due to corrosion for black, uncoated steel. Scheduled thickness losses are for a period of 50 years and are in accordance with ICC-ES AC358.
  2. Allowable compression capacities are based on continuous lateral soil confinement in soils with SPT blow counts ≥ 4. Piles with exposed unbraced lengths or piles placed in weaker or fluid soils should be evaluated on a case by case basis by the project engineer.
  3. Capacities include limiting mechanical capacities of the shaft when the shaft and bracket are combined as a system.
  4. Design checks include the limiting capacities for concrete bearing which is a function of the horizontal distance to the edge of concrete. Other concrete design checks including shear, bending, and punching of the supported structure will be project specific and shall be the responsibility of the project engineer.
  5. This table lists mechanical capacities only. Torque-correlated soil capacities will often govern the actual installed system capacities.

  1. Brackets shall be used for support of structures that are considered to be fixed from translation. Structures that are not fixed from translation shall be braced in some other manner prior to installing helical retrofit brackets systems.
  2. Listed allowable capacities are based on continuous lateral soil confinement in soils with SPT blow counts ≥ 4. Piles with exposed unbraced lengths or piles placed in weaker or fluid soils should be evaluated on a case by case basis by the project engineer.
  3. Listed allowable capacities are for the specific shaft/bracket combination shown. System capacities should also not exceed the torque-correlated soil capacity achieved during installation.
  4. The use of a 48" sleeve in most cases is impractical due to the potential for coupler interference. A 48" sleeve should only be used with pier extensions of sufficient length and when the coupler location can be well controlled.

  1. Governed by AISC allowable capacity of single Ø3/4" (HA150) or (2) Ø3/4" (HA175) Grade 8 bolt(s) in double shear.
  2. Governed by bearing at the bolt holes.
  3. Capacities include a scheduled loss in steel thickness due to corrosion for black, uncoated steel. Scheduled thickness losses are for a period of 50 years and are in accordance with ICC-ES AC358.
  4. Allowable compression capacities are based on continuous lateral soil confinement in soils with SPT blow counts  ≥ 4.Piles with exposed unbraced lengths or piles placed in weaker or fluid soils should be evaluated on a case by case basis by the project engineer.
  5. Listed mechanical capacities are for the shaft only. System capacities should also not exceed the installed torquecorrelated capacity or those listed in the respective bracket capacity tables.
  6. Listed default Kt factors are widely accepted industry standards. They are generally conservative and are consistent with those listed in ICC-ES AC358. Site-specific K t factors can be determined for a given project with full-scale load testing.
  7. Soil capacities listed are ultimate values at maximum installation torque. Allowable soil capacity values are obtained by dividing the ultimate values by the appropriate factor of safety (FOS). FOS is most commonly taken as 2.0, although a higher or lower FOS may be considered at the discretion of the helical pile designer or as dictated by local code requirements.
  8. Square shaft piles may be considered for compression applications in soil profiles that offer sufficient continuous lateral support; e.g., in soils with SPT blow counts ≥ 10. Even in these higher strength soil conditions, buckling analyses should be considered, taking into account discontinuities and potential eccentricities created by the couplers
