Sheet Piles Cold Rolled

Updated: 07.11.2023

Steel sheet piles are the most universal material to protect open trenches, shafts, manholes, building excavations, quay walls, jetties and much more. In combination with H-piles and pipe piles even the most demanding retaining walls can be constructed.

Cold deformed sheet piles are made by a continuous rolling process from steel coils. They are available in HAT-, U- and Z-sections and in a very wide range of section moduli (cm³). As the web and the flange are of same thickness we recommend to use cold rolled sheet piles mainly for permanent installation.

HAT or OMEGA sections have the advantages that the height is not large which makes it ideal for trenches in urban areas where the trench width should be reduced to a minimum.

U-sheet piles are usually installed as single sheets so that driving and extracting by a vibrator or impact hammer is comparatively easy and therefore U-sheet piles are the preferred section as temporary installations for utility trenches, manholes, driving and receiving shafts, etc.

Z-sections must be driven in pairs which needs a well-designed piling frame and, due to the higher weight as pair, also larger piling equipment. Therefore Z-sections are often used for permanent retaining walls such as quay walls, jetties and other marine structures.
