About Betha Pile

About Us

Betha Pile, a piling contractor registered in 2004, specializes in providing high-quality Ductile Iron Piling solutions. Our skilled team of designers, suppliers, and installers are dedicated to delivering top-notch services to our clients. We also provide turn-key testing solutions for pre-construction foundation investigations on Driven or Cast-In Situ piles specifically for the solar industry.

Primary Advantages

These advantages make Ductile Iron Piling a popular choice for various construction projects.

Less Risk

With End-Bearing piles being drive to practical refusal, each and every one is stress tested to between 3 and 6 times their working load. This, coupled with 2 staff per site, makes for a safer experience for workers and desiners.

Value Engineering

High load carrying capacity relative to pile diameter means smaller pilecaps and sub structure in general. – “The piles can carry a safe working load of between 50 – 100 tons, depending on their size, and this can lead to a reduction in substructure of up to 70%.

Time Saving

Up to 400 linear meters per rig per day is possible, and no special site preparation is required for the standard excavator with a powerful hydraulic breaking hammer to start installing the piles.

Pile Technicalities

What is a Ductile Iron Pile

Modular pile sections are connected by a spigot and socket system, eliminating the need for welding and splicing while providing a wall thickness at the connection which is more than twice that of the pipe pile section, resulting in superior dimensional stiffness, driving stability and performance.

With the use of a relatively small excavator fitted with a high frequency hydraulic hammer, piles are installed by driving the pile sections in quick succession resulting in fast and easy installation with minimal vibrations. Ductile Iron Piles can be designed and installed for end bearing and skin friction resistance.

Applications

These piles are suitable as foundations for a wide range of structures, from multi-storey buildings to retaining wall systems, and from Bridges to Power Transmission lines. Suitable for use in acidic and corrosive soils and working lives up to 100 years and beyond.
Betha Pile - Capabilities

Capabilities

Small diameter piles, with a relatively thick wall, carry very high loads. Working loads of up to 1000kN are possible with a 170mm diameter / 9.0mm thick wall Ductile Iron Pile. Piles are driven in with 2880kN per blow, up to 400 blows per minute, and will only refuse on suitable founding material. They easily penetrate boulder layers and hard pan calcrete.

Types of Piles

Driven Ductile Iron Piling is a type of piling system used in construction to support heavy structures and transfer loads to the ground. There are two types of Driven Ductile Iron Piling: Good
Betha Pile - End Bearing Piles​

End Bearing Piles

End bearing piles transfer weight to strong soil or rock by driving the pile to the bearing stratum, determining load capacity by the resistance to driving-refusal

Skin Friction Piles

Skin friction piles rely on frictional resistance between pile surface, cement grout and soil, to transfer load.

Key Projects

These practical examples showcase how DDIP has been used in a variety of projects, including the construction of bridges, buildings, highways, and ports.
