Hot-Rolled Sheet Piles
Hot Rolled Sheet Piles for Superior Watertightness and Drivability
As a nationwide supplier, Meever Konnection is dedicated to Australia’s construction and infrastructure sector. We provide Larssen sheet piles, that are designed to be as lightweight as possible without compromising on strength and durability.
The design of the interlocks offers a good degree of watertightness and aids in pitching and driving. The sheet piles also offer ease of extraction, making them ideal for temporary works. As they can be reused, they encourage sustainable construction practices.
At Meever Konnection, we aim to provide complete solutions for your project. With our logistics service, we can have your order of piles delivered to your site wherever it is in Australia.
Applications and Benefits of Sheet Piles
Steel sheet pile sections connect together through the use of an “interlock” formed on both sides of the profile and created during the manufacturing process. These interlocks connect into one another to form a continuous retention wall giving the wall its section modulus or structural strength. Typically steel sheet piles are designed to create a rigid barrier for earth and water retention and depending on forces applied to the wall the section modulus/structural strength is calculated.
There are various sheet pile types available in today’s market, these would include but are not limited to Hot rolled, Cold rolled, and Cold pressed sections each having its own characteristic and advantage. Typically the two most requested types of sheet pile would be the Hot rolled Z – profile and the Hot rolled U – profile, that said more and more Cold rolled/formed sheet piles are being introduced due to the cost savings advantages.
Z profile sheet pile have a continuous form of the web and the interlock is located symmetrically on either side of the neutral axis this aspect has a positive influence on the section modulus, Z profile sheets are mostly driven in doubles at a width of approximately 1.4 meters often crimped or welded in the centre.
U profile sheet piles allow a perfect technical and economical choice for each specific project, sectional widths very between 400mm and 750mm although 900mm are currently being produced.
Our VL range has great weight over strength characteristic’s and are often preferred due to the easy handling and great durability.
We have access to stocks that are spread out over Europe and other countries to offer the best cost-effective options available to our customers, which means our delivery times can be very short.
