SFA piling is a remarkable replacement piling technique in which the ground is bored using specialised equipment (SFA rig), the soil is extracted, and liquid concrete is pumped at high pressure along with the installation of reinforced steel cages to form piles.

SFA piling is ideal for projects where space constriction or limited headspace is an issue, and minimum disruptions are required. They also work incredibly well with unstable ground conditions. However, the process demands utmost precision and accuracy, which is only achievable by using a high-power SFA rig.

For a hassle-free and streamlined construction project, Alpha Piling Ltd. is offering SFA rig hire in Essex with experienced and certified operators. Our rigs are exclusively designed, cutting-edge equipment offering maximum work efficiency and safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are powerful, specialised equipment designed to bore deep into the ground to carry out the process of SFA piling. They consist of a sharp hollow auger that rotates to dig the ground and extract soil.

The rental cost depends on the following factors:

  • Type and specifications of the rig.
  • Project requirements.
  • Time period of the project.
  • Location of the project.
  • Pile’s dimensions.

The distance depends on the type of rig being used, hence, it can not be generalised without knowing its specifications. However, some latest piling rigs available in the market can be placed within 15mm of a boundary wall.

We work from Monday to Friday, 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.
