Silent Piling

Silent Piling Services in London

The Silent Piling method is popular in residential areas, due to the process being reasonably quiet compared to other piling methods. Usually is residential or populated areas, the noise and vibration from piling can cause disturbances and noise pollution. Geobond is able to provide silent piling services for several residential or commercial sites in London.


Vibration-free Piling

Also known as press-in piling or vibration-free piling, silent piling involves the installation of steel sheet piles in areas with confined spaces, environmentally sensitive or places where noise and vibration would be an issue.

The method is vibration-free. The piling rig utilises hydraulic rams rather than vibrations, which push the piles into the ground, disturbance-free. These clamps lock onto the tops of previously installed interlocking steel sheet piles, which are penetrated several metres underground.
