The Harbor Technologies division of Kenway Corporation manufactures HarborPiles™ and HarborCamels™.
What diameters are HarborPiles available in?
Standard diameters range from 8” to 42”. However, HarborPiles have been manufactured up to 78” diameter.
What are they made of?
HarborPiles are manufactured with e-glass and either a polyester or vinylester resin matrix. We use similar materials to those found in wind blades.
How do you drive the pilings?
HarborPiles are supplied hollow. This enables them to be efficiently driven using industry standard driving equipment including diesel, vibratory and drop-end hammers. HarborPiles are not buoyant.
Do they need to be filled with concrete?
In most cases our pilings can be engineered to handle all the project performance requirements as a hollow piling. The fiber orientation of the fiberglass and wall thickness are easily manipulated during the manufacturing process to accommodate the desired loads.
How can I cut and drill these pilings?
Harbor Pile is easy to work with using tools commonly found on any job site. Both drilling and cutting are quick and predictable and we typically recommend carbide tipped drill bits and saw blades.
What lengths are camels available in?
HarborCamels are available up to 75’ in length.
What is the buoyancy of the HarborCamel?
HarborCamels typically float with a 50% freeboard. If a higher or lower freeboard is required let us know and we can usually meet your needs.
How do they connect to the pier?
Our camels are available with a variety of attachment options. From traditional stainless steel hawse pipes to eye bolt style connections to all composite attachments we can come up with a solution which will work for your specific project.
How are the impacts of vessels absorbed?
HarborCamel has an FRP wall which is designed to absorb the radila compression asserted on the camel during impact. Wall thicknesses of up to 1.5” are used depending on the sizes of the vessels.
