Excavation pits & pile foundations

Franki pile


We are best known for our wold famous Franki pile. It offers particular advantages wherever high loads have to be transferred or wherever good load-bearing foundation soils are only found very deep down in the ground. This pile system comes in a variety of models so that it can be adapted to the various soil and construction situations.

Vertical piles as well as sloping piles tilted up to 4:1 are available. Due to its base expansion, it is also well-suited for absorbing tensile loads.

For more details, please refer to the brochure Franki pile.

You can watch how these piles are made in the video on YouTube.

The Franki pile is also described in detail on Wikipedia.



Frankipfahl NG

Over the years, the production procedure for the
Franki pile has been refined in Germany. Since the
end of the 1970s, we have been working on how
to absorb loads via the pile foot and optimise the
production of the pile shaft. This new procedure for
producing modified Franki piles and its dimensions
was first applied by the German company Franki Grundbau GmbH & Co. KG in the middle of the 1980s and is state of the art today.

The new production procedure with the poured shaft and the specially dimensioned pile foot are explained in more detail in the FRANKI PILE NG brochure.

FRANKI Grundbau now only applies the new procedure to make FRANKI PILE NG.

Mega pile


Since 2009 the FRANKI PILE NG has also been pro-
duced with a shaft diameter of 71 cm. We call this
FRANKI PILE NG the 'Mega pile'. In static load tests
at a construction site in Wilhelmshaven, test loads of
15 MN were generated, proving that pile loads of up
to EK 6.000 kN (pressure) are possible.
