Project Experiences and Resources for 2024

Watkins Institute,  Nashville, TN    Ductile Iron Piles were specified to provide a high capacity foundation solution at a site with very soft soils and highly-variable bedrock depths.

Project teams across North America are increasingly taking advantage of the benefits offered by Ductile Iron Piles. Our customers continue to bring value to projects using the low vibration, modular driven pile system on sites with constrained access, limited overhead, vibration concerns, variable rock depths and other challenges. Curious where […]

A Low Vibration Solution with Driven Ductile Iron Piles

A Low Vibration Solution with Driven Ductile Iron Piles

Traditional driven piles are often associated with high vibration installations. As Jerry Lee Lewis might have sung “there’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on.” But that’s not the case with TRM’s Ductile Iron Piles – a low vibration driven pile system. Instead, it’s more like the Beach Boys singing “Good…good….good…Good Vibrations.” That’s right – Ductile […]

Got Tension? It’s No Problem for Ductile Iron Piles

Got Tension? It’s No Problem for Ductile Iron Piles

Seismic overturning, wind pressures, retaining wall uplift loads or even structural configurations often result in tension demands on foundations. You might be surprised to know that Ductile Iron Piles can offer a deep foundation solution to resist high tension loads, in addition to compression loading. While the unique Plug-and-Drive (bell-spigot) connection […]

Axial Load Testing of Ductile Iron Piles

Axial Load Testing of Ductile Iron Piles

Unlike other deep foundation systems that may rely only on correlations as indicators of capacity, Ductile Iron Piles are routinely load tested to verify performance and confirm design capacities. One of the more frequent questions that arises is what type of load testing can be performed on Ductile Iron Piles […]

Not only FAST. SIMPLE. SAFE.™….Ductile Iron Piles are: Experienced. Proven. Reliable.

Not only FAST. SIMPLE. SAFE.™….Ductile Iron Piles are: Experienced. Proven. Reliable.

For almost a decade, geotechnical contractors, designers, and consultants across North America have been working with DuroTerra to deliver TRM’s Ductile Iron Pile (DIP) system as a high-value alternative to helical piles, micropiles, and most deep foundation applications subject to constrained access. DIPs have been used for hundreds of projects with […]

Are you torqued out with Helical piles?

Are you torqued out with Helical piles?

Helical piles are a good tool for underpinning existing structures and supporting new boardwalks and lightly loaded buildings. Like any piling system, there can be limitations that impact the overall benefit. We often hear these common concerns from design professionals and contractors on projects considering helical piles. What if I don’t […]

Micropiles Made Simple

Micropiles Made Simple

Micropiles fill a niche in geotechnical construction to address sites with challenges including vibration concerns, overhead clearance restrictions and heavily-obstructed conditions. But you often hear words like expensive, slow, messy, complicated, dangerous associated with micropile installations. Did you know that Ductile Iron Piles (DIPs) are being used more and more by project teams […]

Overhead Restrictions on your project?…..Consider a Ductile Iron Pile Solution

Overhead Restrictions on your project?…..Consider a Ductile Iron Pile Solution

Does your deep foundation project have limited overhead clearance? These types of projects are often specified with helical piles or micropiles. Did you know that contractors routinely use Ductile Iron Piles on projects as little as 18 feet of clearance – usually with higher capacities than helical piles and faster, […]
