First, we work with your team to determine the right size and shape for the pre-manufactured CarboShield shells. From there, installation is simple. First, prefabricated half shells are placed on a staging area (a barge or platform) near the pile. Then, the two inner shells are placed together on a hanging tray platform, around the pile. Then, an epoxy is applied to the inner face of the outer two shells, so the outer shells can be applied to the inner shells—bonded together with the joints staggered to complete structural continuity in both hoop and vertical directions. This completes the shell around the pile as it sits on the tray, and then workers lower the tray into the water to the desired depth. This process continues until the pile is covered, at which point workers pump polymer grout into the space between the pile and the shells.
