Sectional Flight Auger

Open Bore Piling

SFA piling is created by drilling sectional augers flights into the ground. The sides of the hole are supported at all times by the soil, auger or placed concrete, eliminating the need for the temporary casing or bentonite slurry. Upon reaching the required depth, sand-cement grout or concrete is pumped down the auger flight filling the pile, whilst the augers are steadily and slowly withdrawn. Once filled reinforcement is immediately placed into the pile.

With powerful rigs it's possible to construct large diameter piles with relatively small rigs making us able to cope with whatever your project requires.

I would just like to thank yourself for your rapid response to our situation we found ourselves in for the requirement for piling and the hard effort carried out by your work force in what can only be said as challenging weather conditions. Going forward we will now have a solid platform to proceed with the construction of our extension project.
