The Standard Z pile is a medium strength product with the versatility to be configured in two main formats. This Z-ribbed format will cover a little more ground and has a shallower front-on profile.
Z piles interlock on wall extremities this unique structure will provide a solid web connecting the two flanges.
This product is extremely versatile and installation is relatively easy, this product is very similar to some steel piles. If its a lower cost, reliable structure you require then Plastic piling provides a worthy solution in many situations. Some examples of the Plastic piles maybe bridge construction, drainage systems, manholes and tunnels.
Note that when these piles are used in the Z-ribbed format it is also stronger than the existing standard pile, this makes it very suitable for installations where the clean look of plastic piling can be seen.
