PIPE PILES steel pipe piles supplier
Deep foundations are utilised when the soils in the shallow region do not have the strength to support the loads from the structure. Pipe piles are frequently used in deep foundations and transfer the loads from building to stronger soil layers found deep underground. The surface loads are resisted through skin friction and point bearing of the pile. The pipe piles can be driven with open or closed ends, with points or plates. If driven with plates, the pipes can then be filled with rebar and concrete to boost the strength to the pile. Pipe piles range in size from several millimetres to several metres in diameter and can be easily spliced to create piles over 100 metres in length.
