This is the Technical bit
Hand held screw pile
As the name suggests this system is run by a power pack and hand held torque head. Its small size enables access through the width of a door and allows piles to be driven on the smallest of sites.
2 types of piles can be used; 60mm with ultimate loads of 12 tonnes or 76mm with ultimate loads of 18 tonnes. Various adaption plates can be added to the pile top. These can be used to connect concrete raft reinforcement, RSJ’s or grillage formations. Pile pressure and resistance is constantly monitored via a gauge on the unit.
Benefits include: quick installation times, zero vibration, no spoil, minimal noise levels, completely portable and ideal for low headroom situations. It makes a very cost effective option.
