Driven Piles are installed using impact or vibration hammers to a design depth or resistance. Keller installs the complete suite of driven piles to support your project.

Common Uses

  • Provide structural support
  • Provide earth retention

Technical Details

Driven piles gain geotechnical capacity efficiently by displacing the soil immediately adjacent. If penetration of dense soil is necessary, pre-drilling may be required for the pile to reach the design depth. Types include timber, precast concrete, steel tubes and H-piles, and sheet piles. The finished foundation element is designed to resist compressive, uplift, and lateral loads. Driven piles can be used to provide lateral support for earth retention walls. Sheet piles are the most common type of driven piles for this application.
