Our trench sheets are used for the reliable shoring of trenches, shafts, and excavations. Such sections are used when sealed interlocks are not necessary. To suit the conditions of driving and the typical applications, the form that has become established for trench sheets is one that is highly stable and suitable for repeated use. Their special shape makes them easy to install and stack. We offer trench sheets with different wall thicknesses, which we stock in length of up to eight metres. We can also roll longer sections upon request.
- Trench sheet piles – tailored for modern driving equipment in terms of shape, material thickness, construction width, and quality of steel – especially suitable for urban channel construction as trench cladding
- Symmetrical rotational shaping optimizes the material behaviour during setup and driving
- Intensive mutual overlapping guarantees low soil permeability
- High torsional rigidity thanks to the high yield point of the steel ensures resistance to warpage
Lightweight sections are mainly used for trench shoring in inner city applications and for upgrading dikes. The interlock of the lightweight section serves as a reliable hook in such applications. The sections are manufactured in lengths of up to 17 m. For structures requiring greater watertightness, e. g. flood protection, we can supply the sections with an interlock filling made from a durable, pliable bitumen compound.
It is also possible to fit a profiled terra sealing system into the interlocks of the lightweight sections. The sections undergo material testing and quality inspections in accordance with DIN EN 10249 and guarantee safety and reliability combined with optimum drivability.
- In contrast to channel steel sheet piles, lightweight sections have interlock connections and can be used in applications where the soil is fluid or where there is water encroachment
- Even though interlock connections are not leak-tight, additional sealing can be ensured through the insertion of fine soil particles in the lock mechanism
- Excellent with additional sealing for flood protection structures in levees
