Piling vibration monitoring with the RDL//Vibe
The RDL//Vibe is the complete piling vibration monitoring system
- with it's robust design, long battery life, wireless connectivity (Via mobile phone network), local intelligence and availability for hire or purchase.
In addition, the RDL//Vibe is simple to install and it's autonomous nature means you really can switch it on and go, and manage system settings from the comfort of your office, or on the move with the CDLSmartHub

RDL//Vibe features and benefits
The RDL//Vibe was designed specifically for it's use on construction sites, to monitor vibrations arising from piling and other construction works. Using the latest in mobile connectivity, the RDL//Vibe puts control back in the project managers hands, allowing them to make decisions in real time to minimise the impacts of their operations on neighbouring buildings and structures.
When carrying out construction works which may produce vibration, all potential receptors must be considered, with particular attention paid to occupiers and users of buildings, hospitals or laboratories, as well as cosmetic or structural damage to buildings or heritage sites.
Companies are already requested to take care planning the sequence of works in order to minimise the transfer of vibration to neighbouring properties, and in some cases project managers are instructed to monitor ground borne vibrations, react and adjust work methods to ensure vibration levels are kept below specific levels.
As available space becomes tighter it will be imperative to protect surrounding properties from the effects of excessive vibration during such works, particularly in cities across the UK.
Piles are the permanent foundation support to so many different structures throughout the UK, so it is of great importance to know the likelihood of disruption that could be caused through installing piles in order to minimise or alleviate it altogether. An increasingly important aspect of project management during construction work, is to understand the impact of ground-borne vibration, on the surrounding community.
Most susceptible to damage from ground vibrations are fragile and historic buildings. A building’s response to ground-borne vibration is affected by various different factors and while a concern doesn’t always mean that there’s potential for damage, without an auditable trail of vibration data it can be difficult to link damage with a particular cause.
As available space becomes tighter it will be imperative to protect surrounding properties from the effects of excessive vibration levels arising from demolition works, particularly in cities, as well as on sites near historic building and sensitive structures such as railway viaducts, railway lines, hospitals, server rooms, electrical sub stations and gas mains.
