Sheet pile is used to retain soil or water using steel sheet connectors with interlocking edges that form a wall and can either be permanent or temporary.
Sheet piling is attractive, quickly installed and economical.
Permanent retaining walls utilising sheet piles are used on schemes large and small, from simple projects to complex slope stabilisation solutions.
Sheet piles maintain their shape during installation. They do not bulge in soft soil conditions and are typically not susceptible to damage from the installation of subsequent piles.
In addition, the steel grade of the sheet piles has been independently certified as equivalent to European Grade S390GP Steel.
In permanent works a high quality finish can be achieved to such an extent that the steel face can be merely painted rather than having a concrete facing wall being provided in front of the sheet pile.
Sheet piling walls are a sequence of continuous interlocking sheet piles that are hammered, vibrated (high-frequency vibration) or driven into the ground.
For seawall bulkheads, sheet piling provides the only practical structural solution available.
The result indicates that sheet piles bending moment increases with excavations and loadings, but decreases after reaching 30 cm.
PURLoc™ is a structural fiberglass composite sheet pile manufactured by the pultrusion process and is designed to be able to weather the harsh marine environment.
We take pride in delivering high quality sheet piling services safely, efficiently and on time, while remaining cost effective and sustainable.
When floods threaten, a modular dike-top system consisting of four sheet pile sections, a U profile and seals are placed onto a beam on the sheet pile wall and connected with locking devices.
In order to offer the maximum amount of space in an excavated area beneath substantially large structures, designers have begun to see the advantage of using a sheet pile system when developing underground parking garages.
It is common to encounter shallow rock in certain areas that interfere with the installation of all common types of sheet pile other than steel.
The new system combines sheet piling and geogrid reinforcements, offering considerable benefits to slope stabilization, marine and levee repair projects.
Today, sheet piles are used frequently in the construction of underground car parks and basements.
Sheet piles are surprisingly strong and a durable solution for retaining walls and seawalls.
Sheet piling is commonly used in projects designed to stabilize and raise the height of levees and earthen dams.
This paper presents an overview of sheet pile types, their durability, and the methods of installation and driving equipment most commonly used in maritime situations.
Sheet piling is an earth retention support technology to retain soil by using interlocking steel, vinyl, or wood sheet sections.
