With 30 years of experience designing and producing custom-fabricated steel products for the civil engineering industry and other markets, Staffordshire Fabrications has seen many changes and innovations across all market sectors. We strive to keep abreast of manufacturing processes, equipment, and vital safety developments. This is why we believe our innovation – Superlatch – is a breakthrough in many ways.
What is Superlatch, and why is it so important? Superlatch is a device that vastly improves the safety and efficiency of sinking concrete piles. This is a dangerous yet essential part of the construction industry for bridges, buildings, and other major constructions.
The traditional method can hold some levels of danger as it involves an operative joining many metal cages together while hanging above the borehole.
Superlatch is effectively a reinforced hook attached to a cage in the factory. When one cage is lowered into the borehole onto another cage, the two automatically click together. The danger is removed, and efficiency is greatly improved. Superlatch is a major step forward in a vital area of construction.
At Staffordshire Fabrications, we are certain that Superlatch is a breakthrough in both safety and efficiency. The time and cost saved by using this highly effective device are impressive, and it removes the dangers involved in sinking concrete piles the traditional way.
Superlatch is just one part of our services, and we are proud of our reputation for quality results and efficient working methods.
Here is more detail on the services provided by Staffordshire Fabrications:
Staffordshire Fabrications uses the latest in CNC milling, turning, and sawing equipment, which allows our expert team to provide custom-fabricated steel products with the finest of tolerances and high levels of accuracy.
Welding and Metal Fabrication Services
Welding services are often a major part of steel fabrication in the civil engineering sector and are used in the processes involved in sinking piles. Superlatch is produced partly by our experienced and expert welding team in our fully equipped 20,000-square-foot factory.
With up to 150 tonnes of pressure and lengths of up to 3000mm, our Press Braking equipment is used for various small and large products.
The prototype is the final step before manufacture, and we produce one for the client to see and for us to conduct extensive tests and inspections. At Staffordshire Fabrications, the safety of our products is paramount.
