In cases where longer piles are required or existing piles need extension, Sub One Diving provides professional splicing services. Our experienced team utilizes advanced techniques to seamlessly connect piles, ensuring structural continuity and strength. Through precise splicing methods, we effectively join piles together, maintaining their load-bearing capacity and integrity. Our splicing services contribute to the efficient construction and expansion of marine structures, allowing for seamless integration and enhanced performance.

Pile Jacketing

Over time, piling can be exposed to corrosion, abrasion, and other forms of deterioration. To safeguard the structural integrity and extend the lifespan of piles, Sub One Diving offers pile jacketing services. Our skilled technicians apply protective coatings or install jacketing materials to shield the piles from harsh environmental conditions. Pile jacketing enhances corrosion resistance, minimizes wear, and provides an added layer of structural support, ensuring the long-term stability and safety of marine infrastructure in the Bay Area.

Pile Materials

Plastic Piles

Plastic piles, often made from recycled materials, offer environmental benefits by reducing the demand for new resources. They are lightweight, making them easier to handle and install. Plastic piles are resistant to rot, corrosion, and marine organisms, requiring minimal maintenance. They also offer excellent electrical and thermal insulation properties. However, their load-bearing capacity may be lower compared to other materials, limiting their suitability for certain projects with higher load requirements.

Timber Piles

Timber piles offer a visually appealing option, blending well with natural surroundings and providing a traditional aesthetic. They are typically more cost-effective compared to other materials, making them a popular choice for budget-conscious projects. Timber piles are relatively lightweight, facilitating ease of handling and installation. However, they may be susceptible to degradation from marine borers, rot, and decay, necessitating regular maintenance, treatment, and potential replacement over time.

Steel Piles

Steel piles are renowned for their versatility and exceptional load-bearing capacity. They can be easily fabricated into various shapes and sizes, accommodating different project requirements. Steel piles offer excellent resistance to corrosion and are suitable for marine environments with aggressive conditions. Additionally, they provide efficient installation, as they can be driven into the ground using hydraulic hammers. However, steel piles may require corrosion protection measures and periodic maintenance to prevent deterioration over time.

Steel piling
Cement piling

Cement Piles

Cement piles offer exceptional strength and durability, making them ideal for projects requiring high load-bearing capacity. They exhibit excellent resistance to corrosion, rot, and insect damage, providing longevity in marine environments. Moreover, cement piles can be reinforced with steel bars to enhance their structural integrity. However, they require specialized equipment and expertise for installation and may have higher upfront costs compared to other materials.
