Advantages

Composite sheet piling

The SuperLock composite sheet piles are a breakthrough innovation in the civil engineering industry.   Made of vinyl polyester or ester reinforced with fiber glass (FRP), the SuperLock composite sheet piling offers all the advantages of vinyl sheet piling, combined with reinforced strength and durability. This technology has been used by Boeing for its new 787 model, 80% of which was designed using composite materials.

Advantages

Durable and strong

  • More durable in comparison to vinyl sheet piling, used for higher walls, may be applied in even more adverse conditions.

  • Resistant to the toughest atmospheric and biological conditions, composite sheet piling is resistant to corrosion and erosion.

  • Flexible and tremor resistant, resistant to UV radiation.

 

 

 

 

Saving of costs and time:

  • Using composite sheet piling in construction of embankments and anti-erosion projects helps reduce the investment costs in comparison with projects using steel or wood alternatives.

  • Each sheet profile has the same dimensions.

  • Simple and fast installation using standard equipment.
