Cold-rolled U Type Sheet Piling is a new technology exsited in late 20th century. Compared to old-fashioned Larssen Sheet Piles, the cold-rolled U sheet piles have got the following advantages:
1. Providing equivalent or better section properties (modulus) with lower material cost, which means the unit weight per square meter is lower than larssen sheet piles. This will help save material cost and as result save project cost.
2. Wider than larssen sheet piles. Less quantity or pieces of sheet piles would be needed, which will speed up the installation process. This will help save project time and as a result help save machine and labor cost.
3. Uniform thickness. Compared to Larssen sheet piles, of which the thinnest part at the interlock part is only around 6.5mm, uniform thickness makes it much more stable during installation and it won’t be easily damaged during installation.
U Type Sheet Piling normally would be delivered in single pile, and somtimes will be delivered in box pile form as per the project design. The height of the U Type Sheet Piling is always the height of combined pile (double pile).
