The Ductile Iron Pile is a driven pile system, utilising high strength ductile cast iron. Pile sections are connected together by a unique spigot and socket joint, which offers speed of connection together with a high degree of stiffness. The piles are installed in quick succession using an Excavator with a Hydraulic Hammer, to both pitch and drive each pile section.
The pile system consists of driven ductile centrifugally cast pipes with conical couplers. Depending on the soil conditions, the ductile cast iron piles will be used as peak pressure or frictional piles.
