This results in lower costs for your project. Synthetic sheet piling are ideal for revetment and shore protection. As they do not rust, this is an ideal solution for public areas and embankments.
The method of installation depends on:
- soil composition
- installation depth
The common way to install a sheet pile is with a vibrating plate. Mounted on a crane or excavator, the sheet pile is driving into the ground.
Injection is an installation method which is used in compact or highly dense soil. The soil is loosened by water injection at the toe of the sheet pile.
