STEELROOTS®
Concreteless Foundations

STEELROOTS® are revolutionary, concreteless foundations. It is a foundation system with multiple application areas. Let's take, for example, masts for infrastructure measures (5G), lighting, radio, telecommunication, video cameras, renewable energy but also steel halls, noise barriers, signing gantries and much more. In the past, these systems were usually built on a concrete foundation — which is very time and resource consuming. STEELROOTS® are much faster and easier to handle.

How do STEELROOTS® work?

But how exactly do the STEELROOTS® work and what makes them so sustainable?

Nature is the greatest master builder. STEELROOTS® make use of the root principle. They consist of galvanised steel struts, which absorb the loads from the centre of the mast in various directions and transfer them to the surrounding soil by means of pressure on the one hand and lifting ballast on the other. The STEELROOTS® even work in difficult subsoil conditions and in less load-bearing soils.

How are
STEELROOTS®
installed?

The STEELROOTS® installation method is very efficient and conserves resources. STEELROOTS® are simply placed in an excavation pit, which is then backfilled and compacted layer by layer with the previously excavated soil of the excavation pit. Only the very top part of the STEELROOTS® protrudes from the ground, on which the respective structure is mounted. Work can continue immediately afterwards and there is no need to dispose of any soil. This makes our STEELROOTS® an extremely efficient and economical foundation method.

Where can
STEELROOTS®
be used?

STEELROOTS® are versatile. They can be used – for example – for the foundation of camera masts, floodlight masts, cell/radio masts (5G) as well as lightning protection masts. But not only there, noise barriers, steel halls, signing gantries, power poles and much more. Another advantage: our STEELROOTS® can be individually customized to your project.

If STEELROOTS® are no longer needed for an application, they can easily be dismantled and re-installed elsewhere. STEELROOTS® are 100% recyclable.

  • Tiny Houses, small houses with an area of ​​less than 25 square meters, are very popular. The reasons for this downsizing are as different as their residents themselves — for some it is an economic necessity, for others it is deliberate reduction to the essentials and for others a maximum of flexibility, as the tiny houses can be implemented without great effort. But even the smallest houses should be on safe ground: a classic case for STEELROOTS® from BFtec. No other foundation system comes closer to the idea of ​​tiny houses than the foundations from Nentershausen, Germany.

  • Baseball and STEELROOTS® from BFtec have more in common than you might think. Both are enjoying increasing popularity, which ensured that the sports facility of the Berlin Flamingos baseball club was equipped with a new floodlight system. When founding the company, those responsible relied on the versatile, quick to set up and extremely economical STEELROOTS® from BFtec in Nentershausen (Germany).

  • Roller coasters are among the great attractions of every festival and amusement park. Not only there, because in the near future the thrill should also be felt on the high seas: Probably at the end of this year the world's first roller coaster will set sail on a brand new cruise ship. It was built by Maurer Rides GmbH from Munich – with the support of BFtec GmbH from Nentershausen.
