Product Description

The principle behind piling is to transfer loads of a structure through strata of low bearing-capacity to deeper soil or rock strata that has a higher bearing-capacity. The loads can be transferred into underlying strata by either end-bearing or friction (or a mixture of both). Piles can also be used to resist uplift and/or horizontal loads.
