Bearing Piles / King Post Walls
J N Piling are able to offer the design (where required), supply and installation of either universal steel columns or steel tubes to act as bearing piles / king post piles using the methods covered in the What We Do section.
They are ideally suited to hard driving in difficult ground conditions and or when founded on rock or similar hard ground.
Universal steel columns are also used in King Post or ‘Berlin Wall’ retaining wall solutions. Suitable in hard ground conditions, a King Post wall is installed by drilling a hole at predetermined centres, filling the hole with concrete and installing a universal column section. Once the columns have been installed, timber sleepers or concrete / steel panels can be installed between the columns in the steel section webs.
