  • Available in 20' to 40' lengths in increments of 5' which helps eliminate costly waste of materials.
  • Longer lengths are available. We are able to splice pilings to meet your needs.

Weight

  • Pilings can often be handled by two people.
  • Pilings can be more easily brought to job sites where access is limited.

Shipping
