Benefits of Steel H Piles and Pipe Piles for Deep Foundations
A deep foundation is distinguished from shallow foundations by the depth they are embedded. There are many factors that contribute to why a geotechnical engineer would recommend a deep foundation over shallow, but the most common are, very large design loads, poor soils at shallow depth, and site constraints (tight property lines) that would prohibit shallow foundation construction. Driven piles are the most storied and trusted conventional deep foundations systems.
Steel H Piles and Pipe Piles offer design, installation, and cost benefits. Their defined isotropic material properties resist compressive, tensile, and lateral forces. They are readily available, made from 100% recycled content, and load ready; “A driven Pile is a Tested Pile”, unlike alternate insitu/cast-in-place systems.
