Turning Slots

We fabricate turning slots for slotted steel angles and more.

Pittsburgh Pipe can supply pipes with plain ends or with any custom or fabricated elements needed for drilled shaft construction projects, such as weld bands, turning slots, teeth attachments, lifting lugs/lifting eyes, and others. Turning slots are typically custom cut into the steel “in the flat” per your dimensions before rolling the pipes.

What Kind of Slots Do We Fabricate?

We fabricate turning slots and j-slots, also known as twisting slots. These slots fit into slotted steel angle pipes to help them fit together with each other and other pieces of a drilled shaft construction project. What is drilled shaft construction? It’s a construction process used for deep foundations, and it often uses steel pipe to create concrete caissons or bored piles. The pipe helps create these deep foundation solutions that strengthen the ground in areas with weak soil or rocky ground, which makes shallow foundations impossible. Drilled shafts require concrete slurry to solidify the ground around them. Pipe with turning slots and j-slots help deliver the slurry to the foundation to strengthen the ground and keep the drilled shaft in place. We fabricate these slots to help your drilled shaft construction move along smoothly and efficiently.
