MaxSpan™ FastBuild
Industry’s Lowest Part Count of all Pile Systems

  • Industry’s fastest install system due to minimal parts
  • Lowest A frame part count of any system, just 3 parts (pile, beam and brace) and 6 bolts
  • Three axes of adjustability demanded by installers for navigating real world site conditions where significant adjustability in the field is required
  • The unmatched span capability of the MaxSpan™ means there are fewer foundations than competing systems, which also means less piles and less pile installation cost. As few as 190 piles per MW
  • Standard system has 3.5"[8.89cm] vertical adjustability
  • Optional post extenders allow 10 inches vertical adjustability
  • Typical Part Count Comparison vs. Competitors for A Frames (Post, Brace, Beam and Related Brackets)
