We stock all the components and parts that make up our full range of installation and testing kits, available for individual purchase. If you are needing an additional or replacement part, please get in touch, and we’ll be happy to help.
Horizontal Testing Kit
Our horizontal test kit provides a simple and effective means to evaluate site ground conditions and understand the lateral load of ground screws on projects.
6T Tripod Tensile Test Kit
Evaluate site ground conditions with the tripod tensile test kit, providing measurements to evaluate the potential uplift forces and load-bearing capacities of ground screws.
6T Hydraulic Tensile Test Kit
Our 6-tonne hydraulic tensile test kit provides an effective way to evaluate site ground conditions and understand the potential uplift forces and load-bearing capabilities of ground screws.
10T Compression Test Kit
Deploying hydraulic pumps, gauges and cylinders, this kit determines the site-specific compression values and load-bearing capabilities for your project, with two optional lengths of test beam.
12T Hydraulic Test Rig
The 12-tonne hydraulic test frame from BAYO•S provides the empirical data required to specify the appropriate ground screw for installation.
Accessories & Manual Tools
At RADIX, we provide a range of manual installation and surveying tools available for purchase alongside our ground screw foundations and kits.
The Pilot (Sliding Hammer Spike)
The Sliding Hammer Spike is a portable, hand-driven multitool for installing ground screw foundations, saving professionals time and hassle on projects.
The sliding hammer generates enough impact force to create a pilot hole for ground screws and can be driven into the ground to act as a spike when deploying a Turning Machine.
The Personal Trainer (PT-Bar)
The DIY PT-Bar can be deployed to manually install 76mm ground screws up to a length of 1050mm in suitable ground, perfect for smaller garden projects and structures.
It has been known for this install tool to be used on 1250mm screws in suitable ground too.
The Cat (Cable Avoidance Tool)
The cable avoidance scanner allows you to scan sites with confidence that there are no underlying cable lines before beginning the installation of any project.
