Benefits

Engineers and Designers

Environmentally friendly

Will not leach carcinogens (like chromium and arsenic as with CCA treated wood) into the environment.


Regulatory friendly

More and more jurisdictions are banning CCA treated wood in sensitive waters.


Customizable geometries

Moments of inertia can be tailored to specific loads and applications.


Energy absorbing

Protects vessels from damage in case of collision.


Tremendous strength to weight ratio.


Contractors / Builders

Increased production

Piles are driven much faster than solid piles.


Increased penetration

Driving refusal is typically deeper than solid piles, enhancing structural performance.


Versatility

Can be filled with concrete or other fillers after driving.


Reduced equipment requirements

Vastly lighter than wood, concrete, or steel.

Owners

Appeal

Absolutely the most attractive option available for dock pilings.


Lifespan
