Fin Piles

Stronger, more convenient piles.

Pipe piles are specified based on the type of project, but fin piles offer features that other fin piles can’t match. With greater strength, energy absorption, and convenience than other pipe piles, fin piles are the answer on many projects.

Fin Pile Factors

Multiple factors make fin piles the ideal solution to your projects’ needs. Compared to other pipe piles, fin piles boast greater tensile and compressive strength and are able to withstand greater degrees of pressure. This is because of how they’re used. When a fin pile is hammered into the ground, it goes down like a screw, creating additional friction from the surrounding soil that increases its durability. 

Fin piles excel in projects that take place in soft ground, such as underwater situations. Because they are able to take on greater degrees of stress than conventional piles, some might think they’re more expensive, but that isn’t the case. Since they don’t need to be as long as other pipe piles and are stronger, project costs when using fin piles are often lower than the cost of using standard pipe piles

Often, piles absorb energy from outside forces, such as an earthquake. Fin piles have greater energy absorption characteristics than standard pipe piles in situations where there is a risk of pile overload or seismic activity. Fin piles can take on a massive amount of energy without losing their strength, saving you more money in the long term. 

Fin piles are the perfect solution to multiple projects, such as:

  • Structural Dolphins
  • Dock Fendering Systems
  • Tower Foundations
  • Inundated Platforms
  • Abutments
