Cost of the KIE-LOCK splice is generally governed by the moment capacity requirement. Please contact us for further discussion.

SAMPLE SPECIFICATIONS

"Piles with mechanical splices, such as the KIE-LOCK Splice (mfd. by Pile Splices, Inc. 541-488-5410) are allowed as an alternative to one piece piles provided that  [ the splices are located at least  ___ft. from top cut-off and/or  ___ ft. below scour elevation, and ]:

  1. Splice capacity in tension, bending and compression is equal to the epoxy dowel splice as shown on the Contract Drawings/Standard Specifications.  Calculations and shop drawings to be submitted for approval."
    or
  2. Splice capacity in tension, bending and compression is at least _____K in tension, _____K-ft. in bending, and full pile capacity in compression. Also, the splice must have tension capacity greater than allowable driving stresses. Calculations and shop drawings to be submitted for approval."
    or
  3. Splice capacity in tension, bending and compression is equal to ultimate pile capacity.
  4. Calculations and shop drawings to be submitted for approval."
    or
  5. Splice capacity in tension, bending and compression meets the requirements of the International Building Code 2012 Para.
    1810.3.6.*   Calculations and shop drawings to be submitted for approval."

* "Splices shall be constructed so as to provide and maintain true alignment and position of the component parts of the deep foundation element during installation and subsequent thereto and shall be designed to restrict the axial and shear forces and moments occurring  at the location of the splice during driving and for design load combinations. Where deep foundation elements of the same type are being spliced, splices shall develop not less than 50 percent of the bending strength of the weaker section."   Et seq.
