Steel Crib Piers
Simple and strong, a crib pier is a type of pier built with supporting columns made of "cribs".
Traditionally cribs are made from wood, but they can be made of any, long cylindrical material, and we tend to utilize steel.
Pairs of cylinders are laid parallel, with others laid over top of them to form a square. This layering continues, increasing the height, much like the construction of a log cabin.
The advantage of crib construction is its simplicity and its accompanying strength. The cribs can be empty, or filled with some other material such as rocks or concrete blocks. This reinforcement filling provides extra stability in high winds when it is utilized in the construction of tall cribs.
