Standard Ceme-Tube Product Details

Made from partially recycled HDPE plastic and available in 8", 10", 12", 18", 24", and 30" diameters, Ceme-Tube LLC's Standard Ceme-Tube™ will change the way footings and piers are made. This revolutionary new product will eliminate many problems old cardboard tubes have.


The Ceme-Tube® will not only take job site and shipping abuse, but they can be installed, completely backfilled, and filled with concrete at any future date. All Standard Ceme-Tube® products are four feet in length, but with the integral collar on one end, and can be stacked to produce piers up to 20' tall in one pour or 12' tall for 30" models. The finished pier will be round, smooth, equal in diameter, and of architectural grade for the entire length.


An optional domed cap is available in all sizes to keep rain, dirt, children, and more out of the hole prior to pouring concrete.


Our non-ribbed Standard Ceme-Tubes are available in 8", 10", and 12" only. Gen 2 Ceme-Tubes with reinforcement ribbing are now available in 18", 24", and 30" Ceme-Tubes.
