Silent and vibration-free pile driving
For many years noise and vibration caused by sheet pile driving and extraction was thought to be unavoidable however the introduction of the pile pressing machine has made these problems a thing of the past.
The silent piler provides a virtually noise and vibration free means of installing and extracting sheet piles. The Kowan (Tosa) Stillworker Giken silent Piler walks along the tops of the piles so removing the need for large piling gates and offers potentially easy access to areas that might have otherwise been difficult to work in.
It is now possible to install sheet piles immediately alongside existing buildings without the worry of disturbing your neighbours. This is especially important when working next to hospitals, schools or in the middle of town and city centres. It is also possible to install corners, gradual curves and go up or down gradual slopes.
