You might be wondering what makes piling so important. So let me tell you that a house, building, or better to say a concrete structure that is to be built should have an underground structural base and strong foundation. This is the main thing that helps to support the building. Thus, it can be said that piling is nothing but a technique contractors use to set a deep establishment for structures. Cfa piling gives extra support to the structure. They do so by adding extra piles of wood, steel, or concrete into the ground’s deep soil.
Certain things need to be taken care of before starting the piling process. This includes the condition of the soil, capacity, size, and also the scope of the project. The most common piling material that is used is the vertical column of the wood, the precast concrete piles, timber piles, and also steel sheet piles. There are different sorts of piling available and it is mainly differentiated based on the type of material that is being used. Discussed below are some of those techniques of CFA piling. They are:
- Drilled Piles: These drilled piles are also known by the name of the cast in drilled hole pile which in short is CIDH piles. It makes use of the extensive boring technique to drill the earth’s surface.
- Driven Piles: In this form of piling, a pile driver is used to drive the assemble heaps into the ground. It has been noticed that some of the most common driven piles are concrete, wood, and steel.
What Are The Piling Devices Used?
The piling device, as well as technique, varies based on the type of contractor that you hire. But still, there is some common CFA piling device that is being generally used. They are:
- Hydraulic Hammer: This is one of the remarkable piling devices that is being used. The main motive behind using this tool is that it helps to insert as well as drive timber piles into the ground.
- Pile Driver: It is nothing but a mechanical device that is used to drive or insert piles into the soil.
The CFA piling is nothing but a continuous flight auger pile that is concreted as well as drilling. The best part of this pile is that it has a faster installation time.
