Steel Sheet Piling

Steel sheet piles are ideal for forming structurally sound and often watertight retaining walls or barriers either for permanent or temporary purposes.

Driven into the ground and interlocked with the previously installed pile to provide earth retention and excavation support, sheet piles are generally hot rolled sections of steel with interlocking clutches.

They can be used for a huge range of projects and sectors such as:

  • Highways
  • Rail embankments
  • Flood alleviation
  • Inland waterways and rivers
  • Cofferdams
  • Marine and harbours
  • Contamination containment barriers
  • Steel intensive basement structures

Sustainable sheet piling

We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment. Take a look at the steps we have taken to make our sheet piling service a viable and sustainable option for your next project:

  • Sheet piles manufactured from 100% recycled scrap steel
  • Re-use of sheet piles for temporary works
  • Framing steel reuse
  • Environmentally sensitive areas; particularly in inner city areas
  • Close proximity to existing buildings and structures
  • Versatility to work in very confined areas
  • Majority of specialist sheet piling hammers and pile presses operate using biodegradable hydraulic oil
  • Telescopic leader rigs with resonance free or variable moment vibratory hammers reduce the vibration caused when installing and extracting steel piles
  • Use of vibration free pile press methods mitigates noise and vibration pollution
