MICRO PILE SYSTEMS
Micro-piles are high capacity, small diameter (<12”) piles ideally suited for new or existing foundations. Micro-Piles can be installed in a variety of conditions where access is difficult for conventional pile driving or where minimizing disturbance and avoiding damage to existing structures is of ultimate importance.
Typical applications for micro-piles include load augmentation where an increase in the capacity of the foundation is required due to a building addition or supporting newly added heavy equipment; structures that have settled and require leveling or support by underpinning; and supporting new structures in soil or environmental conditions that are not suitable for conventional pile driving equipment.
Some attributes of micro-piles are:
- Installed with small equipment making them ideally suited for areas of limited access
- Easily installed in confined areas such as inside buildings where noise, vibration and exhaust emissions are all of concern
- Can be installed in a variety of soil conditions from very soft soils to fill soils containing boulders or even solid bedrock where traditional pile driving operations often fail
Injection Bore (IBO®) Micro-Piles
For rocky soils or even solid bedrock, we recommend using our Injection Bore (IBO®) Micro-Pile System. CTS/Titan IBO® System utilizes a
Driven Ductile Iron Pipe Piles
The DYWIDAG Driven Ductile Iron Pile is a driven pile system that uses high strength ductile cast iron pipe connected
Helical Piles are recommended for homogeneous sands and clays
