“You’re from Jersey? Which exit?” goes the joke, referring to which exit a native New Jerseyan takes off the NJ Turnpike to get home. Superintendent Mark Timari of South State Inc. of Bridgeton NJ needed to drive 18″ pipe piles home for a bridge over the New Jersey Turnpike for the new Exit 7 Interchange. He did the right thing and called APE Northeast for an APE D30, and APE rose to the occasion, delivering a hammer ready to go to work. The D30 performed flawlessly throughout the project.
APE Northeast would like to thank South State for the business.
Please call APE NE for all your pile equipment needs at 888-217-7524.
APE was assigned the task of decorating the sea of cranes at the Port of Anchorage. This challenging task took courage and experience. There were environmental issues, huge tides, weather that varied from sunny and beautiful to snowing sideways, not to mention the 90’ to 120’ flimsy flat sheets that needed to be driven. This took the efforts of (4) APE Model 200-6 Vibratory Hammers.
As you know, accidents can be prevented if we take the time to train. We have worked very hard to come up with the APE Safety Tips. This is a video of all the safety tips we can think of. I am sure there are more. We need your safety tips. Send them in by emailing directly to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
All the old guys are retiring and along goes the experience. This includes experience in how to handle and operate pile driving and deep foundation equipment in a safe manner. We are looking for older, experienced, possibly retired pilebucks that can help us with safety issues.
Our APE 125 Safety Tips video is available on our website by clicking the link in the left navigation bar labeled “Safey Video”. The video will be broken down into seperate small clips in the coming weeks for quicker viewing of each tip and then uploaded to youtube.
Welcome to the first post to the new Noise and Vibration section of the APE Website. This section has been created to inform the public about projects and research in relation to the noise and vibration of piledriving hammers (vibratory, diesel and hydraulic). Some current and prospective clients may find this information useful when deciding and researching what kind of effects a hammer will have on the surrounding environment and wild life.
This post references the pictures on the right from top to bottom.
1. The first picture is a Fraser River Pile and Dredge using a sheet of carpet to hold back diesel smoke.
2. Here is an example of a “Hat” that has been done to make a diesel hammer quite on a jobsite in Florida. These are sound deadening mats that offer a considerable amount of noise prevention on around a jobsite.
