After previously supplying a variety of companies – in particular, Van Elle with concrete beam foundations – our team decided to broaden their product range and create Concrete Driven Piles. This has enabled us to create an effective foundation solution for the growing housing industry.
Our Driven Piles are a cost-effective foundation solution that can be used in all types of projects within the construction industry, these include underpinning houses and light buildings, as well as being used as foundations on new buildings and for marine construction.
These Concrete Driven Piles are reinforced with a pre-formed steel cage and may also be coated with a bituminous layer to combat very difficult ground conditions. Our team opted for a standard square pile with a slight taper to make the de-moulding process more successful.
The Driven Piles are also fitted with a universal bar and dowel jointing system with steel crack rings, allowing any configuration of units to be formed, meaning you can meet the required depth of ground on your project. This also allows each length to be joined easily and securely.
Concrete Driven Pile Sizes
Our Driven Piles are available in two sizes which are commonly used in the housing industry:
- 200mm x 200mm square pile
- 250mm x 250mm square pile
Both sizes are reinforced with a 12mm steel helical cage and produced in standard lengths of 3m, 5m 6m, 7m, 9m and 12m.
