An embedded or sheet pile wall obtains its soil retaining function from the soil pressure, combined with or without an anchoring system, and from the resistance of the wall against the bending moments and transverse forces. Steel piles are supplied as single, double and triple sheet piles, with U, H, or Z sections. The sheet piles are connected to each other by interlocks. To obtain double or triple sheet piles these are joined by means of punching or by intermittent welding. Steel sheet piling is suitable for quay walls with a high retaining height and heavy surcharge loads. If even heavier structures are needed, these can be constructed from various types of combined walls.
We install sheet piles from land or water base, depending on the project. The installation method for sheet piles or combi piles depends on the local conditions. Commonly used methods include:
