PGF System

The BAUER PGF System (Pressurized Grouted Full Displacement Pile System) is a simple, fast and highly effective deep foundation system. The industrially pre-fabricated piles are made from high-strength ductile cast iron which guarantees a high quality and safe foundation solution. To execute the foundation, each individual pile section is joined together via socket-spigot joint to form a pile shaft of any length. The pile sections are vibrated into the soil by a high frequency impact hammer. After driving, the pile is cut down at exactly the required length. The pile is installed as either an end-bearing, or skin friction pile depending on the soil characteristics. With the time duration of driving process recorded the soil bearing capacity of the different layers can be correlated. Thus, for each single pile an individual pile can be specified to suit the local soil condition.
