Sheet piles are thin steel members that are driven into the ground to provide earth retention and excavation support. They are regularly used for retaining walls, land reclamation, and below-ground structures (like car parks).
Sheet piles can also be used in river and coastal applications with corner piles to help reduce the amount of inflow into a cofferdam.
A sheet pile is an essential equipment piece on a construction site.
Whilst they can also be made from timber or concrete, a steel sheet pile is the most common form used as it provides strong resistance against high-impact pressure.
The strength of sheet piles is thanks to their simple but effective design. Each sheet pile part interlocks with another to create a border or wall when arranged together.
This can be to provide both temporary and permanent support, depending on the project.
Mabey Hire uses steel sheet piles for optimum strength and support.
You can rely on our sheet piles to provide robust structural resistance at your worksite for as long as it’s needed.
