New tapered pile is taking the industry by storm!
Tapertube being positioned into pile leads.
» TAPERTUBE is designed for
load capacities up to 200 tons and even more.
» TAPERTUBE is manufactured
using 50-ksi yield steel. We do not depend on the cold working of the steel
to produce the necessary strength required.
» TAPERTUBE can support greater
loads in weaker soils because of our greater variations in size and tapers.
» TAPERTUBE is especially convenient when long piles are required. A 25’ bottom section can easily be matched, on the job, with a 50’ top section to produce a 75’ pile and no over length trucks or permits are required.
Pipe being spliced to driven section
» TAPERTUBE extensions of steel pipe make field splicing fast and dependable using drive fit splices, weld fit splices or butt-welding. There is never a need for special tools, slitting and bending of the pile, and you never have to rely on a fillet weld working in shear as you do with other systems.
» TAPERTUBE can be matched
to smaller diameter extensions to suit load conditions or to reduce the
effects of downdrag. A large diameter tip can be used to take advantage
of weaker soils while retaining a smaller diameter upper portion of the
pile. For instance, a pile using an 8” tip 25’ long and tapering
up to 18” could be extended with a 14” top.
» TAPERTUBE factory installed drive points are made with tough low alloy steel.
