  • Silent and Vibrationless Techniques

    Where vibration and noise could adversely impact on existing structures or the environment, silent and vibrationless hydraulic pressing techniques are often used. Ivor King C.E.C Ltd operate Giken ECO 700S piling rigs, which offer the very latest technology from Japan and is cost effective, silent...

  • Side Grip Technology – Movax

    Excavator-mounted Movax vibrator equipment, allows sheet piles to be side gripped and to be rotated in both the vertical and horizontal plane. This is a major advantage over older equipment like EMV vibrator units. The vibrator then clamps onto the top of the pile in...

  • Hydraulic Vibrators

    Hydraulic vibrators are widely used for installation and extraction of all pile sections. High frequency vibrators are able to be engaged and disengaged before the generation of the more damaging lower frequency vibrations and are a favoured choice in city centre sites where building proximity...

  • Hydraulic Drop Hammers

    Hydraulic drop hammers replaced the older pneumatic and diesel hammers for driving all steel piles. They are generally used to install piles in very dense strata, whether cohesive and non-cohesive. Their use allows conventional best practice driving techniques to be employed, penetrating more difficult ground...

  • Plastic Sheet Piles

    Used on a smaller scale, plastic piles can be installed in softer ground conditions with vibratory hammers such as Movax and EMV or air hammers. Used for lower retained heights, they can be pre-treated with hydrophilic sealants to provide cut off walls and impermeable barriers....

  • Steel Bearing Piles

    Either tubular or H section steel installed with vibratory and impact hammers. Ideally suited to difficult, hard driving conditions, they offer cost effective solutions and are widely used in projects requiring high capacity axial loads. Being a displacement type of pile, no spoil arisings are...

  • Conventional Piling

    Involves the use of temporary gates or guide frames, which comprise of beams and trestles or “spud” piles. These provide the support for the sheet or tubular piles which are pitched into the gate prior to driving, generally by a service crane. The piles are...

  • Pre-Augering

    Pre-augering is commonly used to loosen the soils and thus reduce driving resistance to aid installation in difficult and hard conditions. Generally taken to the full depth of the specified sheet piles, a flight of augers is drilled in and then back-spun out to minimise...

  • Hydraulic Pressing

    Vibration free hydraulic pressing allows up to 4 single piles to be driven at a time. Piles are manoeuvered into position with pitching chains or a winch at the rig mast then gripped in the hydraulic jaws. The pressing force is achieved by using the...
