Garden Projects Get Off the Ground with Ground Screws!

Dundee-based RADIX is delighted to be extending its ground screws product range to meet the needs of the DIY market.

Working alongside a network of collaborators, RADIX is the largest manufacturer, stockist and supplier of UK ground screws, boasting unrivalled construction, engineering and manufacturing knowledge and expertise.

In partnership with Europe’s largest manufacturer of ground screws, BAYO.S, who bring 15 years’ experience to the table, the new DIY range is set to transform the way homeowners and small businesses get their garden projects off the ground.

Whether a garden shed, decking or playground equipment, the new, extendable DIY ground screws provide an affordable, low-carbon alternative to traditional concrete foundations.  Eliminating the need for concrete, the ground screws provide instant, low-carbon foundations which can be built upon in minutes instead of hours or days. In addition to the ground screws, the DIY range also includes a number of installation tools, including the Manual Spanner and Powered Gearbox 1:20 Kit.

According to Jiří Houžvík, Statutory Director of BAYO.S, the UK is perfectly suited to ground screws and could benefit greatly from their presence in the marketplace – “Because of our experience, we know the market extremely well. When it comes to DIY, people love new technology but, more than anything, they love to save on time, labour and money. Society is also becoming more environmentally aware – why go to the trouble of digging, disposing of the mess and shovelling cement or concrete into a hole when you can install a low-carbon solution that can be built on immediately? Once you’ve used ground screws, you never look back – it’s so easy to measure their success and really see a return regardless of how ambitious or tricky your project is.

“As a country, the UK is perfect for ground screw installations. Yes, the UK experiences frozen ground and snowfall but not creating frozen depth as you see in, say, Canada, meaning you’re not fighting against frozen ground when you put the screws into the ground.”

Welcoming the partnership, Callum Milne, Managing Director of RADIX added, “We advocate for collaboration and pride ourselves on working with the right partners to ensure that we can provide high-quality, low-carbon solutions which make a positive impact on our environment.”

“We are particularly excited to be teaming up with BAYO.S who have unrivalled experience in all elements of ground screw foundations. The DIY range is a fantastic addition to our product portfolio and means that private individuals and the trades can tap in their dimensions and order the right amount of ground screws for their project. Of course, we’re also with our customers every step of the way and here to provide any additional technical advice or design and manufacturing expertise to help bring their project to fruition.”

Based in the Czech Republic, BAYO.S currently exports to Scandinavia and Holland.   By working exclusively with RADIX for the UK market, Jiří believes the collaboration brings value to all concerned, not just the end customer.

He continued, “We are export-orientated and always looking for new partners in different locations.  Every company has a different request for the product, different soil conditions, a different style of building so we are delighted and excited to be working with a company of RADIX’ calibre to really add value within the UK market. Callum and his team are the right match for us – they understand the product and the processes and we’re excited to explore the wider potential of our collaboration.”
