Description

PRE-CAST CONCRETE PILES
Application.
This pile may be used for all types of structures and foundations, from housing, through other forms of domestic building, to commercial and industrial buildings and installations. The piles can also be used for all types of civil engineering applications from bridges to embankment support, power and transmission towers and rail-related structures.

The RB Pre-cast Concrete Piling System is quick to install and very cost-effective in most ground conditions. This pile is environmentally attractive as no spoil or arisings are generated from pile installation.

In its standard form the pile is a compression pile with small tensile and bending resistance capability. The design is however, easily adapted to accommodate larger tension and bending forces. The standard segment lengths of 1.5m, 3m and 4m can be complemented as required by 6m segments and by tapered lead sections or enlarged lead sections, as required.

Installation
RB pre-cast concrete piles are usually top-driven using hydraulic drop hammers, some of which are supersilenced and are part of the company's fleet of remotely operated Quiet hammers. Hammer capacities range from 1T up to 10T for our general purpose low noise, low vibration hammers and can be mounted on a variety of tracked or wheeled rigs, depending upon project location, type, access and headroom constraints. All rigs are designed and purpose-built in-house to meet specific site access and transportation criteria.
