Universal Bearing Piles
Universal Bearing Piles or steel piles are widely used in the construction industry for both temporary and permanent purposes. Steel piles are typically used for basement retaining walls, quay walls and highway structures. The Piles can also be used for bearing purposes in foundations. Unlike other Universal Beams and Columns, Steel Piles are typically of uniform thickness in order to maximise robustness for driving and to minimise any reduction from corrosion.
