Odex Piles

Odex piles are used for drilling through boulders and for drilling rock sockets.

Basic Technique

Odex piles are formed by drilling and hammering a steel casing into the ground. The drilling is done with a down the hole hammer which has the capacity to bore through obstructions and into solid rock,, this borehole can be continued into the rock as an open hole. Concrete is then pumped into the hole and a steel reinforcing cage can be installed. The steel casing can be removed or left in place.
