Sustain Composite Pilings Test Results - (973) 464-5506

The Pilings have been developed using an innovative, three dimensional fiberglass fabric that has exceptional shear, stiffness and strength properties as well as outstanding damage tolerance. This advanced fabric is produced at the manufacturing facility. Each piling is produced to the specific diameter and thickness requirements to optimize properties and minimize cost.

The outer coating is a dual component, 100% reactive toughened acrylic paint system. Designed for superb long term performance and protection in heavy weather environments. These Pilings are strong enough to be driven to the highest level of resistance. Ensuring a solid and ever lasting installation.

This is a relative comparison chart. Failure ratings will vary depending on soil conditions.

12-inch diameter, 0.375-inch wall thickness Open-End Sustainable Composite Reinforced Pipe Pile

The pile types 124R 12-inch diameter, 0.375-inch wall thickness open end sustainable composite Fiberglass Reinforced Pile (FRP), 10-inch diameter, 0.5-inch wall thickness Grade 3 steel open-end pipe pile, and 12-inch diameter timber pile which tapered to an 8-inch tip diameter. All pile types were 40 feet long.

The piles were impact driven with drop hammer with no leads. The drop hammer corresisted of a steel weight welded to 7.0-feet long 16-inch diameter steel pipe. The combined weight of the ram and pipe was reported to be 5,500 pounds and the maximum 7.0-foot ram stroke (determined by the pipe length) providing a maximum rated energy of 38,500 ft-lbs. No helmet cushioning material was required for the hammer type.

The piles types were driven a minimum of ten feet apart in approximately 15 feet of water. The soil profile reportedly consisted of 2 feet of organic deposing overlaying, loose sands, overlaying dense sand and gravel.

TYPICAL PROPERTIES/CHARACTERISTICS

Sustainable Composite Piles will better withstand the forces of Mother Nature. And by being a friction piling, they present a higher resistance to lifting during storm surges. Because they are lighter than wood, steal or concrete pilings, installation is easier and can be done with a variety of pile driving methods and equipment.

While impervious to rot, rust and wood boring insects, the piling contain no harmful coatings or preservatives, which can leach into the soil.

PILE DRIVING EFFICIENCY COMPARISON

A special marine-grade resin system locks in the thousands of interwoven rovings and mattings to produce a sheet piling that can withstand the toughest conditions. Like the Composite Pilings it can withstand the forces of Mother Nature.

Does steel give you the performance guarantee you would expect for paying thousands more on your seawall. I don’t think so! By choosing the seawall products you are getting specifically design use for for marine applications which also comes with the industry leading warranty.
