Heavy Duty Cardboard Piling Tubes

Piling tubes are designed for use in areas where ground heave is expected,  i.e. The London Clay Belt. They serve as a great foundation where the heavy weight will be applied above. A special type of industrial tube, the special slip coating allows for movement of clay around the pile, thus greatly reducing stress normally transferred through the said pile.

The surface area of the pilling tube is manufactured in such a way that it will maintain its circular form and smoothness after pouring. The mouth of the pile needs no extra support during pouring and will not expand under loading, unlike plastic tubes. You can find piling tubes and many others tailored to your needs through our online shop.

Piling Tube Uses

Our Piling Tubes are ideal for many groundworks, civil engineering and piling projects. Commonly, they are just known as cardboard tubes for concrete. They are perfect to be placed on uneven ground prior to concrete being poured to ensure a level base.

This reduced the amount of excavation needed and also reduces the time taken, being both cost and time effective.

If you have more specific requirements for your piling tubes, we have the ability to create customised tubes that are tailored to your needs.
