    Can piles be driven in all types of soils?

    Yes, with the exception of very hard soils and rock, where you would need to pre-form the hole.

    How are piles driven?

    Piles can be driven by standard vibratory and impact hammers.

    Once driven in place are piles filled with concrete or sand?

    No, typically the piles are left hollow, adding sand and concrete increases the stiffness which reduces the energy absorption capacity. 

    Does driving damage the top of the piles?

    If hard soils are encountered the tops of the piles may be damaged. 

    What type of saw is used for cutting the piles?

    A demo saw or circular saw with a diamond bit blade can be used to cut the piles.

    What type of drill is used for drilling the piles?

    Carbide tipped drill bits can be used to drill piles.

    Can the piles be spliced? If so how?

    Yes, the piles can be spliced. splice details are available upon request. 

    What is the maximum available length of the piles?

    Piles can reach up to 100ft.

    Can the piles be shipped by truck or rail?

    Piles are typically shipped by truck, allowing for greater control of delivery schedules.

    What is the anticipated service life of the piles?

    Piles have a service life expectancy of 75 years or more.

    Can FiberPILES be used for both fendering and load bearing applications?

    FiberPILES are primarily used for fendering applications.
