Designed with the marine contracting industry in mind, the EcoPile is the most economically and environmentally friendly composite marine piling to date. The EcoPile is totally impervious to wood-boring organisms, has a much longer lifespan than treated lumber, and is UV/IR resistant.
EcoPile vinyl pilings eliminates the hassle of having to constantly replace pilings weakened by weathering, fungal, and wood-boring. Since the piling is a vinyl-composite, the typical natural weathering causes that affect pilings are nonexistent. Additionally, EcoPile vinyl pilings are maintenance free, impact resistant, and protected by a limited 25-year warranty. That is why EcoPile pilings can last upwards of twice what traditional wood pilings.
Never Change Your Pilings Again
As more and more states across the US continue to ban or reduce the allowance of treated lumber in water, the usefulness of wooden pilings is steadily dropping due to less protection and higher susceptibility to weathering. In recognition of this, the EcoPile was engineered and designed to not only surmount the harsh marine environment, but to outlast all other existing pilings. Gone are the days of continuously replacing wooden pilings over your marine structure's lifetime when you switch to EcoPile. With the EcoPile's unparalleled durability backed by a 25-year limited warranty, you will never have to worry about repairing or replacing your marine pilings again.
Internal Webbing for Increased Strength
Unlike many other hollow pilings, the EcoPile contains an internal hexagram truss system to significantly increase the pilings’ strength and rigidity. The intertwined webbing of these triangles work together to create a stronger, more sturdy piling. In addition, the hollow spaces between the triangles allow for you to run wiring or plumbing through the EcoPile.
Grooved Retention Rings to Reduce Settling
To ensure the piling is properly secured in place, the bottom segment of the EcoPile is threaded so that sand can freely grip the piling. The additional surface areas from the grooves and aforementioned webbing lends to making the EcoPile very resistant to settling. Furthermore, these threaded grooves ensure the EcoPile locks into the ground and prevent it from being pulled during severe weather storms.
PVC & Fiberglass Composite for Increased Resistance
During the manufacturing process, chopped fiberglass is added to the rigid PVC. These fiberglass additives make the EcoPile stronger, enhances its impact resistance, and creates an outer layer that is UV/IR resistant. The outer layer also helps keep the piling cool to the touch during sunny weather, and boosts its resistance to weathering overtime.
Due to the fact that PVC does not wear down in the water, we offer a 25-year warranty on the EcoPile. Theoretically, the EcoPile should last a lifetime and then some.
