Trust a recognized product
Under the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) assesses compliance with Canadian building, energy and safety codes. They are the only construction code compliance service supported by the Government of Canada.
Postech has held a report since 2003 and has been part of work groups to improve the safety of Helical Piles and Screw Piles for the entire industry. To Learn more about why you should always choose a CCMC approved product you can visit their website.

Welding is at the base of our products
The CWB certifies companies, organizations, welders, inspectors, and welding consumables manufacturers through a review and qualification process to ensure that they meet the requirements for welding product production and safety codes.
The CWB is also a not for profit organization providing welding certification to standards such as CSA W47.1. and CSA W59 which Postech proudly subscribes to.
We hire ONLY welders that have acquired the competencies needed to be certified and we, with the help of engineers specialized in welding, review all of our processes to ensure conformity and the highest quality of products on the market.
Why you need STANDARDS
Our steel True Pitch® helical piles were tested to ASTM D:
ASTM D1143 / D1143M – 20, “Standard Test Methods for Deep Foundations Under Static Axial Compressive Load”
- ASTM D 3689/D 3689M-07(2013)e1, “Standard Test Methods for Deep Foundations Under Static Axial Tensile Load”
- ASTM D 3966/D 3966M-07(2013)e1, “Standard Test Methods for Deep Foundations Under Lateral Load”
Furthermore, our steel only use premium graded structural steel in all our products.
ASTM A500 / A500M – 21, “Standard Specification for Cold-Formed Welded and Seamless Carbon Steel Structural Tubing in Rounds and Shapes.”
G40.20-13/G40.21-13 (R2018), “General Requirements for Rolled or Welded Structural Quality Steel/Structural Quality Steel”
ASTM F3125 / F3125M – 19e2, “Standard Specification for Structural Bolts, Steel, Heat Treated, 120/105 ksi Minimum Tensile Strength”
We treat our products to last with hot dipped galvanisations.
ASTM A123/A123M-17, “Standard Specification for Zinc (Hot-Dip Galvanized) Coatings on Iron and Steel Products.”
Our welders are all certified according to relevant standards.
- CSA W59-18, “Welded Steel Construction (Metal Arc Welding)”.
