FLAMING PILING CUSHIONS

Flaming Piling Cushions

When developing your approach to Pile Driving Safety consider the pile cushion in the design process. Pile Cushions deteriorate after 2000 blows and I have come across a cushion that has caught fire on site. After being pounded for some time, the cushion will become compacted and its effectiveness as a cushion is diminished.  Monitor your cushions and include in the design a safe method of replacement. For information on piling techniques check out our Piling Advice Note
