Selecting the appropriate piling for constructing your project’s foundation holds paramount importance in ensuring its stability and durability. In situations where access is constrained, or headroom is limited, SFA piles are the favoured method. These piles are fabricated similarly to conventional ones, but the augers come in sectional form. They usually span 1 to 2 metres in length and are progressively added as the pile progresses forward.

When it comes to SFA rig hire to streamline the construction process, Alpha Piling LTD offers specialised rig hire services in Kent tailored to unique demands. Our SFA rigs ensure optimal results for foundation needs, even in challenging environments.

Let it be guaranteed that your foundation requirements are met with professionalism, reliability, and innovation with Alpha.

Revolutionising Piling Solutions with Our Versatile Rig Features

Enhanced Access

A standout feature is our rig’s capability to tackle projects in areas with restricted access. By utilising sectional auger sections that can be easily assembled on-site, our rigs enable piling operations even in confined spaces or areas with limited headroom.

Unmatched Versatility

Alpha Piling Ltd’s rigs offer unparalleled versatility. Contrary to conventional perceptions, the segmented nature of the auger flights, coupled with the rig’s capabilities, allows for greater depth achievement compared to traditional methods. This adaptability ensures that our rigs can meet the demands of diverse projects, providing superior performance beyond the limitations of fixed-flight rigs.

Cost-Efficient Solutions

Our SFA rig hire offers a cost-effective solution, particularly for smaller projects. By minimising the need for extensive plant mobilisation and working platform costs, our rigs reduce overall project costs without compromising on quality or performance.
