Steel Sheet Piles have been used for ground support for over 100
years, their Versatility, Reliability and Strength has been
paramount to their success and constant use in the construction
industry. In recent years the Steel Sheet Pile has been
substantially improved, becoming more cost effective due to an
increased strength and reduction in weight. The modern Steel Sheet
Pile is manufactured in two different shapes, The U Profile and Z
Profile, both used worldwide.
The U Section is the most recognised and well known profile in the
Steel Sheet Piling industry. Its versatility, strength and
reliability in all types of condition as a retaining structure have
been well proven and documented many times over the last 100 years.
In 1914 the interlocking idea on both sides of the Sheet Pile was
created. This is still utilized all over the world as the most
popular Steel Sheet Pile section.The interlocking system increases
the strength of the Sheet Pile structures, be it cofferdam or earth

Applications of Sheet Pile/Piling
Widely used in embankment, dock, retaining walls etc.
1. Used for the permanent constructional structure. Such as
embankment, harbors, docks, retaining walls, anti-earthquake
reinforcement project, and flood gates.
2. Used for the provisional structure to seal the mountain,
provisionally to retain the wall, to cut off the river, to
cofferdam, to lay the pipeline and to ward off the earth, the water
or the sand.
3. Used for the flood-fighting and emergency rescues to prevent the
flood, collapse, sink or sediment flow
