Dawson’s Range of Innovative Piling Equipment
Dawson also makes an Excavator Mounted Drills (EMD) that can be easily fitted to the boom of your excavator; perfect for low head room site conditions or drilling over obstructions, the torque range from 17.5 to 48.5 kNm and a High Power to Weight ratio means that these Drills are very versatile moving around site., where ever the excavator goes you can drill a vertical hole.
Dawson’s produce a Silent And Vibration Less Push-pull System that will push or extract piles into the ground, being perfect for inner city areas where vibration and impact hammers can damage surrounding buildings. Modules can be configured to drive Z, U and H piles either in crane suspended mode or attached to a leader rig system. In simple terms, the Push-Pull system works by gripping on some of the piles for a reaction and driving one at a time, and then moving to the next pile and gripping on the rest, working backwards and forwards along the set. It can also work in reverse to extract silently.
Dawson manufactures a Universal Pile Extraction Machine that can extract all sections i.e. Z, U, piles, H beams and also Tubes out of the ground with either a 400 or 1000 tonnes of force, making it a unique machine in the world of piling. This silent extracting machine has an extraction rate of 3m per min. and is safer than using a vibrator or pulling with a crane.
Dawson has made over 15,000 Remote Release Lifting Shackles which have been sold worldwide for the past 35 years and have become the standard device for lifting steel piles from the horizontal to the vertical when pitching. Each shackle has been physically tested to twice its SWL and designed to lift 5 times this level e.g. A 10 tonne shackle has been tested to 20 tonnes and is designed to lift 50 tonnes thus building in a very high safety factor. All Dawson’s steel handling and lifting products are built to these same safety standards and thus maintain the highest safety standards on site.
Dawson Sheet Pile Threaders not only ensure site safety but also enable piles are threaded very quickly improving work rates and thus saving money. The Universal Sheet Pile Threader will work with all sections of piles such as Z, U and straight sections, making it a universal labour saving device, which is very safe. The Standard Sheet Pile threader has to be set-up at the outset to just 1 pile section and therefore is not as flexible as the Universal System.
Dawson has supplied Sheet Pile Guide Frames to contractors around the world to enable sheet piles to be installed accurately and safely when using Vibros and Impact Hammers. Spans of 14 or 26m provide a solid beam at ground level to guide the piles into the ground and a walk way at either 4m or 6m above the ground, which has the additional feature of a guard rail to provide safety for the operator. Sugam Infrastructure Ltd., promoted by SUGAM GROUP, is the Sole Distributor of Dawson products in India.
