Z profile sheet piles are called Z's because the single piles are shaped roughly like a horizontally stretched Z. The interlocks are located as far away from the neutral axis as possible to ensure good shear transmission.
Non ferrous sheet piles include Vinyl sheet piles, Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) sheet piles and Aluminium sheet piles. They are lightweight, chemical and corrosion resistant, with hydraulic performance to prevent seepage.
Corner sections can provide the required change in wall direction that cannot be accommodated by the rotation of sheet pile interlock without the need for fabricated special piles. These are lightweight, efficient sections.
Sheet pile rental provides an economical alternative to the upfront capital costs of purchasing sheet piles. J Steel offers a rental fleet of sheet piles with section modulus from 700cm ³/m to 3,600cm3/m.
