Rail Augered Piling

On-Track Augered Piling

Van Elle Rail first brought augered piles to the UK rail market in 2014. Since then, contractors have had a viable alternative to driven steel CHS piles, ideally suited to where clays or granular sands/gravels are found. It is also a quiet and reduced-vibration method of piling capable of forming piles to 1200mm diameter and 35m depth.

CFA (Continuous Flight Auger) or SFA (Sectional Flight Auger) piles are a non-displacement solution and therefore spoil is deposited at the surface and needs to be disposed of safely, sustainably and in the appropriate location.

In certain areas of the country where a sheet piled wall is the most suitable solution but the ground is too dense to penetrate, this method has been used to disturb the strata/pre-bore prior to driving the sheets.

Van Elle Rail's modern fleet of state-of-the-art Colmar T10,000FS, T10,000FST, T12,000FS & T10,000FSCG rail cranes provide reliability, power, safety and versatility for all requirements. The on-track rail cranes also enable us to lift and safely place OLE masts, signal stanchions, footbridges and gantries through single or tandem lifting as well as providing the piling and foundations prior.
