When using ground screws to anchor your IronRidge ground mount, you will need the IronRidge Set Screw to complete the installation. This custom component is required to connect the IronRidge Ground Mount foundation pipe to the ground screws(sold separately).
The quantity needed is determined by the ground screw used and the ground mount structure layout. American Ground Screws require 3 set screws per ground screw and Krinner Foundations require 4 set screws per ground screw.
Designing & Building with Ground Screws
Using a ground screw foundation begins by knowing your soil class, you can either contact your local AHJ, check online to see if a soil survey report is available for your area, or hire a geotechnical engineer to assess the site. Certain sites may require a site-specific soil report or ground screw load testing.
Design Assistance will provide the span between piers, the quantity of ground screws and your complete bill of materials for the ground array. To make the ground screw selection process easier IronRidge has approved two ground screw manufacturers. Krinner Foundations and American Ground Screw make the only compatible ground screws engineered and included in the IronRidge Ground Mount certification letter and installation manual.
As part of the installation process, you will need the IronRidge Set Screw. This custom component is required to connect the IronRidge Ground Mount foundation pipe to the ground screw. American Ground Screws require 3 set screws per ground screw and Krinner Foundations require 4 set screws per ground screw.
