A while back we were approached by Container Domes Australia’s Paul Whitla and asked if we could hold down his container dome projects with our Securepier Tie Down system, offering both him and his customers a simpler more cost effective way of delivering projects.
This install was at one of Arrow Energy’s casing yards in Moranbah, Qld and presented a real challenge for Paul and his team. The proposed area the dome was to be placed had a soil density in excess of 400Kpa at 100mm deep, in simple terms it was hard as a rock. Using traditional methods of boring piers and filling full of concrete not only was a deal breaker but would of taken days to complete the process. The simple solution - predrill the pile holes before driving the piles into the ground.
Each tie down was installed on average in 6 to 10 minutes which isn’t bad considering it was their first time installing the system this way. By using Securepier Tie Down, Paul and his team are able to place the containers, install the domes and tie down the project simultaneously, completing projects considerable faster than they had been previously doing.
