How steel sheet pile works

Usually, the material used to make piling sheets is steel, but wood and vinyl sheets are also used at times. The concept is to design narrow, interlocking steel sheet pile that can be connected and driven into the ground to form a wall. Stability and strength are defined by the shape and material of the steel sheet pile. Steel sheet pile is considered to be the most appropriate material if the requirement is to withstand large bending forces and pressure.

Uses of steel sheet pile

  • •  When construction is taking place in a confined space, then temporary walls are used to prevent cave-ins; offering protection to the workers working in the vicinity of the area.
  • •  In a home environment, steel sheet pile is used as permanent walls as they provide stability and durability to the interior walls (especially basement walls).
  • •  Pilling is also used to prevent floods to structures close to shorelines.
  • •  To protect foundations from water damage.
  • •  To support excavations for parking structures, basements, foundations, pump houses, and to construct.
