Q1: What is Steel H Pile?

Steel H Piles are structural steel beams that are square in shape; they are driven vertically into the ground at building sites and used mainly to support deep foundations of very large design loads. Steel H piles can be either driven or drilled to penetrate deeper into the most difficult soil, rock conditions or constraints, this is due to its strength, durability and excellent design and material characteristics that can transfer loads and handle heavier structures.

Steel H piles are widely used for heavy civil engineering and large construction projects, such as skyscraper, highway, bridges, pre-engineered metal buildings, marine structures, soldier piles (beams) and lagging.

Steel H-piles are also referred to as HP, HBP or HP shapes.


Q2: What Are The Applications Of Steel H Pile?

Steel H-piles are preferred over concrete piles because they are practical in terms of driveability, constructability and cost. They are applicable to almost all geological settings; they are versatile and available in small and large sizes.

Small size steel H piles are used mainly for soldier piles, falsework, bracing systems, while large steel H-piles are essential to support heavy and large structures because of their load-bearing capacity that can withstand maximum loads and better weight distribution over big surfaces from the topsoil down to the stronger soil or rock below. Without the use of a large steel h-pile is used to achieve the stability needed to hold the total weight of the construction and the weight of traversing traffic traversing the case of bridges and airports. For multi-story towers steel H-piles are applied to support high live and dead loads associated with the building. They are applicable for land-based and water applications including:
