No other piling system in the world can compete with Screwpile Australia's piling system, not even those who copy our technology. Our systems are the fastest and most predictable available in the world today. Our patent pending systems enable up to 100 x 600kN screwpile installations per day. For construction sites where latent ground conditions are encountered the system provides rapid solutions to minimise any additional time required for piling works.
Unlike conventional concrete piling, screwpile installation is not adversely affected by ground water levels. Water tables are always a problem for concrete bored piles, usually requiring slow dewatering procedures or the use of messy slurry products such as Bentonite. Dewatering is expensive and brings with it issues of managing and treating the discharge water. For sites where PASS (Potential for Acid Sulphates) exist, this further compounds the problem. There are no such issues when using our screwpiling system.
No Vibration & Limited Noise Contamination
As building sites become smaller and more confined, noise and vibration are a significant environmental and occupational health and safety problem. Occupational Health and Safety issues affect workers and occupants of adjoining buildings and require risk assessment and minimisation policies and procedures. Similarly, the potential for damage to adjoining existing structures due to excessive vibration must also be assessed and monitored. Using our screwpile systems virtually eliminates these concerns as the rotary hydraulics used delivers quiet vibration-free installation.
No Spoils, Concrete or Reinforcement
Concrete bored piles generate excess soil spoils. In instances where Bentonite is used, sites become messy and hold up other trades. On sites where our screwpile systems are used other trades can go about their work as there is little site disturbance and installed screwpiles can be interfaced with the building's sub-structure immediately as there are no curing time delays.
Limited Access Installations
Sites with limited headroom or width access can be easily resolved using versatile installation equipment and a multitude of screwpile configurations. In most instances there is no need to remove existing structures or plant life, we simply work around or under it.
Think about it, a screwpile can be un-installed just as easily as it was installed by simply unwinding it if no longer required. Try doing that with a mass concrete block or concrete pile. It's generally left behind for the next generation to deal with.
Minimal distrubance installation makes the use of screwpiles for environmentally sensitive areas such as lakelands, rivers and parks just commonsense as there is no, or minimal, impact on surrounding flora and fauna.
