The soil properties, site conditions, and driving depth will determine the type of equipment needed and the number of Truline u-channels that can be driven at one time. Conventional methods and equipment used for pile driving are appropriate for installing Truline. Vibratory hammers, plate compactors, drop hammers, jackhammers, water jets, air jets or excavator bucket pressure may be used individually or in combination. In difficult driving conditions, a steel mandrel may be required. Some contractors have chosen to fabricate a custom driving head or “T-block” to increase efficiencies in the installation process.
The following equipment for installing a wall are available from Truline.
