Steel core piles are the type of pile that is preferred for highly concentrated loads on a small surface, such as bridge foundations. So when the load rises and the requirements for small environmental impact are extra high, we at Pålab have the knowledge and equipment to install steel core piles of all types. This solution is generally more expensive but also meets the very highest requirements.
Steel core piles are constructed in such a way that a steel pipe is drilled down to rock, where the drilling then proceeds without steel pipe to create a hole in the rock. Then the steel core is brought down into this hole, and thus becomes the dimensioning body to take the entire load. After that, the other cross section of the hole is filled with cement, to protect the steel core from corrosion, and to stabilize it later. Additional advantages of steel core piles are that they can withstand both compressive and tensile loads. We verify the load-bearing capacity of our steel core piles by shock wave measurement, or dynamic test load as it is also called.
