Creating the Megapfahl pile
Frankipfahl NG® piles with a shaft diameter of 71cm have also been included in our range since 2009. We call this Frankipfahl NG® the Megapfahl pile. With a slender shaft diameter of 71cm, the Megapfahl pile characteristically provides pile resistances Rk of up to 12,000kN with, depending on the soil type, usually very little settlement.
Diverse applications for improved sustainability
The Megapfahl pile can be used in a wide variety of subsoil conditions as a deep foundation element for structures with particularly high vertical loads, such as bridges, industrial buildings, power stations and silos. The high load bearing capacity of this pile enables the construction of a much smaller foundation or abutment than that required with other pile systems, thus reducing the volume of concrete required, even with large supporting loads.
