General Info

The S 250 – 8 model is our “universal” pile cap specifically designed to increase capacity and flexibility in domestic and commercial applications. It has a total of 8 sleeves which allows for micro piles to be driven in either a 2, 3 – or 4 – way direction. 4, 6 or 8 micro piles could be specified depending upon the load applied to the footing and soil parameters.

The S 250 – 8 is the economical option to replace bored piers and screw piles located under slab on ground, strip footings and concrete pads.

This model is particularly useful where complexity exists within a building site. It helps negate the issue of underground services, boundaries, steep terrain, and internal corners due to multiple pile direction options.

Multiple sleeve options

The S 250 – 8 model can be used adjacent to boundaries and underground services. Due to the multiple sleeve option micro piles can be driven in a 2 – or 3 – way orientation avoiding potential clashes. Micro piles are driven parallel to the underground service.

The identification of services for location and depth should be considered at the design stage. This information should be provided to Surefoot at the time of quotation.


Light Poles/Camera Poles

The S 250 – 8 model is commonly used to support light poles, Air & Traffic monitoring equipment and camera poles etc. it is similar to the S 400 – 12 model which is used for taller poles with a higher bending moment. It replaces bored piers, screw piles, concrete pads and removes the requirement for a reinforcement cage / cast in hold down bolts.
