DO THEY WORK?
KIE-LOCK splices use a
male-female connection with steel plates and attached
rebar anchors precast into the ends of the pile segments.
When splicing, rectangular high-strength steel
bars are driven into the matching annular grooves of the plates, forming a shear key joint.
Male/female splice halves are interchangeable. 24", 30"
& 36" sq units have 4 bars at 90°.
- If pile lengths are
too long for casting, hauling, or driving in one
- Where low head-room or height restrictions requires short
- Enables the use of smaller equipment for cheaper hauling
- Where it is in the public safety interest to loft and drive

OF THE KIE-LOCK SPLICE
- The only pile splice in the world engineered for concrete prestressed piles.
- Designed to meet or exceed any pile capacity or load
- Adaptable to virtually any pile size, shape, and strand
- Positive locking – cannot
come apart during driving.
- Splicing time is
minimal – no welding, grouting, or epoxy needed,
minimizing field labor.
- Proven and reliable – tested, and
extensively used for 35+ years in all types of
- Design calculations satisfying
the latest US and Canadian engineering and code standards for
prestressed piles are provided.
- The KIE-LOCK is adaptable to virtually every pile
design. However, since some designs have much higher
strengths than others, even for the same pile size, it is
necessary to match strength requirements. If the splice
was standardized for the highest strength pile it would be too
expensive for the standard commercial pile design of the
region. Splice costs reflect strength requirements.
- The KIE-LOCK is made in customer specified quantities to suit
project requirements. There are some stocked standard
QPL18" and 24" splices for FDOT projects at the present
OBTAIN A FIRM QUOTATION,
we need to know as many of these factors as possible per the RFQ form:
1) Pile design: concrete strength, strand
size, number, and location.
2) Any particular bending and/or tension
requirements on the drawing or in the specs,
or epoxy dowel splice details if given as
3) Possible quantities (minimum number,
maximum, how many test piles).
Will there be a small quantity of
indicator/test piles needed before production piles are ordered?
4) Best approximation of schedule: when test
pile splices and production pile splices would
be needed at the casting yard.
We constantly work at improving prices by manufacturing
efficiencies with no compromise to quality to keep world
leadership in cost effectiveness, reliability, and engineering
that the KIE-LOCK splice is known for with prestressed concrete
