King Post Wall
The Movax vibrator unit fixes to the end of the dipper arm of a 360 excavator. It has one major advantage.
The vibrator unit is able to be rotated vertically and horizontally. In normal driving mode the Movax, like conventional vibrators will clamp onto the top of a pile to drive it. However by rotating the Movax in the vertical plane it is able to grip a pile at the side and drive from this configuration. This enables a pile that is longer than the clearance under the unit to be partly driven until the pile is low enough to relocate the Movax and clamp it onto the pile top, and complete the drive. The multi-rotational ability means that the Movax can pick a pile off a stack, self pitch it, and then drive to level. With the unit fixed to the end of its arm the excavator can stand back from the pile line to drive the pile. This enables piles to be driven where access is awkward, and with less preparatory work being required. The vibrating units can in a range of sizes to suit various sizes excavators, including long reach machines. Pile accuracy is monitored via electronic instrumentation in the drivers cab to provide true accuracy of the pile.
Elite Sheet Piling can offer our customers the most cost-effective solutions on all types of steel sheet pile installations. With our knowledge and design service, schemes can be looked at in depth and value engineered for any proposed sheet piling requirement. The wide variety of plant we have at our disposal we are able to offer sheet piling installation and extraction using a variety of methods. We can offer a straightforward vibratory or percussive driven installation or extraction. On a more complicated scheme where there are environmental considerations we could offer a silent and vibration less method, or if inside of the building, or underneath a bridge we can offer restricted headroom piling.

Elite Sheet Piling can provide alternatives to sheet piles, such as King post walling systems at certain sites and in certain ground conditions. The King Post Wall can be used as either a permanent or temporary solution and can be constructed from either, concrete panels, timber sleepers or beams, steel panels or trench box panels. Whatever the wall is constructed from, whether it be in a permanent or temporary state, it relies on the panels being inserted into preinstalled steel H-beams or girders. These H-beams can be left in place or extracted after the works have finished, dependent on the site. If used on a suitable application, a King Post Wall can provide a more cost-effective solution than sheet piling, with the added advantage that the installation process is virtually silent and vibrationless.
