The vibrations and noise of a building site are becoming a problem in more and more locations. Conventional methods of driving cannot always comply with the demands. So a special method of installing piles is needed. Pile-supported pressing solves this challenge, and the GIKEN Silent Piler was developed to meet that challenge. It is an efficient driving system that works with little noise and no vibrations, and at the same time achieves optimum results in the most diverse subsoil and site conditions.
This method involves exerting an exclusively static pressure on the pile section without any vibration. The noise associated with driving piles and the negative effects of vibration for neighbouring buildings and the ground are therefore avoided. Pressing equipment can be leader-guided or mounted directly on top of the sheet piles
