The key difference between the synthetic non ferrous sheet piles and steel sheet piles is the bending strength. The key advantages are that these sheet piles are lightweight, and chemical and corrosion resistant making them ideal for a wide range of applications.
Larssen sheet piling has been used since 1912 in the construction of piers, oil terminals, waste storage facilities, bridges, houses, buildings, other construction sites and for the strengthening of pond banks, preventing slumping into a pit and flooding of the fenced area.
L.B. Foster Piling has been a leading supplier of flat, pipe, H beams and Z sheet pile to the construction industry for more than 80 years. L.B. Foster's long experience in the production and application of sheet piling extends to today's current line of quality sheet piling sections.
Tubular piles can be driven with either an open bottom end or closed end. When driven open end, soil is allowed to enter the bottom of the tube. If an empty pipe is required, an auger can be used to remove the soil inside following driving. If the soil is suitable internal cleaning could also be carried out by water jetting.
Our versatile range of steel pile dimensions and products allow you to select the optimal size and length of pile for all soil conditions. Steel piles can be installed using light equipment, which conserves the environment and reduces excavation need and costs considerably.
Standard American Beams – Also known as Junior Beams, S Beam, or I Beams have tapered flanges for increased strength of the flanges. Wide Flange Steel Beams - Also known as W Beams or H Beams have non-tapered flanges that are wider than the standard S or I beams.
Tubular piles possess high column buckling strength and energy absorbing capability which make them particularly suited to marine construction for jetties, piers and dolphins where the piles project above sea-bed level.
Pipe piles are applied in various constructions. Some examples: they can be used as foundation piles to support bridges, buildings or other structures onshore and offshore, as a pipe line to transport fluids in or as pipe anchor.
Deep foundations are required when the shallow soils are not strong enough to support the loads from the structure. Pipe piles are commonly used in deep foundations and transfer the loads from building to stronger soil layers found deep underground.
Typically hot rolled steel sheet piles are designed to create a rigid barrier for earth and water, while resisting the lateral pressures of those bending forces. The shape or geometry of a section lends to the structural strength.
Hot rolled steel sheet pile sections have a connection “interlock” at both ends of the section. These interlocks connect with one another to form a continuous wall of Sheet Piling. Soil conditions may allow for the sections to be vibrated into the ground instead of being hammer driven.
Steel sheet piles are long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that creates a continuous wall. The walls are most often used to retain either soil or water.
Sheet pile walls are constructed by driving prefabricated sections into the ground. Soil conditions may allow for the sections to be vibrated into ground instead of it being hammer driven.
With multiple stocking facilities throughout the United States, Hammer & Steel has a large selection of steel sheet piling products available for sale or rental. Our sheet piling products feature mechanical "ball and socket" connections that allow each steel sheet to interlock with another and create a rigid barrier for earth and water while resisting the lateral pressures of these forces.
Sheet piling is an earth retention and excavation support technique that retains soil, using steel sheet sections with interlocking edges. Sheet piles are installed in sequence to design depth along the planned excavation perimeter or seawall alignment.
A ground anchor is a load transfer system designed to transfer the forces applied to it to a competent stratum. An anchor is generally said to be temporary if it has a lifespan of under 18 months and permanent if the lifespan is over 18 months.
STINGRAY® anchors, a patented labor and time saving device, work like a toggle bolt in soil. The anchors are driven into the ground with conventional equipment (with no excavation and no grout), providing a safe and environmentally sensitive installation.
The largest of the DUCKBILL Earth Anchors, the anchor is cabled with a 5/16 inch (7.9mm) cable. Standard installation depth = approx. 60 in. Note that installation of this anchor requires a small jackhammer and a power drive steel.
Manta Ray Earth Anchor‘s Features •A rugged driven plate anchor for all types of soils •Can be installed in extremely tough soils such as caliche, decomposed rock, glacial till, and permafrost •Large model available for swamp application
Earth Anchors design and supply outdoor furniture suitable for Councils, schools, special schools, playgrounds, parks, streets, places of interest, holiday parks, caravan parks, adventure parks, zoos, hospitals, shopping centres, shopping malls, hotels, motels, sports arenas and facilities, prisons, visitor attractions etc.
