What are sheet piles:
Sheet Piles are Z or U shaped long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that creates a continuous wall. Interlocked sheet piles form a wall which is earth tight or water resistant and are commonly used for the construction of retaining walls, cofferdams, bulkheads and seawalls.
Why sheet piles:
Sheet piles are light types of profiles, easy to handle and fast to install in both soil and water environments. The interlocks of sheet piles are suitable for strong connections, also in combination with H beams and tubular piles (combi-walls). Sheet piles have a long service life and can be used for temporary and permanent applications. The use of sheet piles would allow to work in narrow spaces.
Range of Sheet piles:
The available steel grades for sheet piles are S355GP, S390GP, S 430 GP and ASTM A572 Grade 50 and 60. The current range of ESZ sheet piles is produced in two different widths: 630mm and 700mm. The section modulus of the current range vary from 1700 cm3/m to 2800cm3/m. ESZ sheet piles can be supplied in any length between 6.00 and 31.00 meter as singles , doubles or triplets.
