The pile splice is tested and type approved for use in Germany by Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik where the pile splices’ ability to absorb dynamic load is documented by means of a stress test – Zulassung Nr. Z-34.21-228.
The resulting Wöhler line is shown above and can be sent on request. The production of pile splices for the Danish market is controlled by Dancert and for the German market by Materialprüfanstalt für das Bauwesen – TU Braunschweig. The pile splices are available as 4-lock and 8-lock splices. The number of locks depends on the loads.
The design of the CPG pile splices allows for recommendations of the Swedish pile commission (“Pålkommission”) report no. 105 “Steel piles’ resistance against corrosion in the ground” (”Stålpålars bestandighet mot korrosion i jord”). Section 2.12 “Corrosion of steel fittings for piles of timber, concrete or steel” (”Korrosion på stål i beslag till pålar av trä, betong och stål”) specifies the corrosion of the pile lock parts to be 0.2 mm/100 years.The report also specifies that pile splices can be further protected against corrosion by means of lubrication of the lock parts.This measure is a standard of the CPG pile splice.
