Traditional dock and harbor work continually involves pile jacketing to preserve remaining pile life or increase pile design load.
Pile jacketing is usually specified for for three reasons:
- To provide corrosion protection
- To arrest deterioration and maintain current load value
- Structural pile jackets to increase load bearing capacity
Logan Diving & Salvage has completed all forms and types of pile jacketing on timber, pipe, and concrete piling. Various filler materials are available depending on the application. Concrete, grout and epoxy are the most common and suitability is determined by design application. New cement grout additives that eliminate cement porosity have been field tested and found to perform well. This relatively new technology has improved jacket quality in regards to chloride intrusion. With salt water excluded from the core pile and reinforcing, jacket service life is dramatically increased.
Commercial divers from Logan Diving & Salvage can inspect, recommend, design and install pile jackets for your facility or project.

Pile Jacking Technology
Marine structures requiring piling for substructure composition are often subjected to harsh environmental factors.
Splash zone corrosion, environmental overloading and impact damage are just a few of the major causes of substructure pile failure.
Many marine structures have overhead obstructions such as buildings, warehouses and equipment that prevent traditional pile replacement by driving.
Logan Diving & Salvage is the owner and sole source marine contractor for PILE JACKER ® pile jacking sleeves in the continental United States. This new U.S. patented technology provides for the replacement and loading of substructure piling with no overhead access beneath existing structures.
