PVC-U Piling
Application

  • Box format, standard piling – water and bank retention, at a higher retained height or where higher strength is required.
  • Full pan – bank retention and restoration. Also suitable for temporary work during civil engineering as it can be left in situ.
  • Trench shoring – temporary measure during engineering works as it can be left in situ.
  • Z-ribbed, standard – bank retention and floodwalls, where bending strength governs the design and no deflection is required.

Description

PVC-U piling in a range of styles, manufactured from recycled plastic.

Features and benefits:

  • Does not rot or rust.
  • Maintenance-free.
  • Clean, consistent appearance that doesn't age over time.
  • Can be easily cut or bored with no sparking.
  • Ability to create curved walls and 90º corners.
  • Not affected by salt water.
  • Resistant to chemicals and rodent and marine borer attacks.
  • Not affected by salt water.
  • Lighter than steel.

Applications:

  • Box format, standard piling – water and bank retention, at a higher retained height or where higher strength is required.
  • Full pan – bank retention and restoration. Also suitable for temporary work during civil engineering as it can be left in situ.
  • Trench shoring – temporary measure during engineering works as it can be left in situ.
  • Z-ribbed, standard – bank retention and floodwalls, where bending strength governs the design and no deflection is required.

PVC-U Piling

Type

Box format, standard

Strong sheet pile configuration used for higher retained heights or where greater strength is required.

Full pan

Replicates the look of steel sheet piling. Flat back profile and easy to install.

Trench shoring

Thin profile piling.

Z-ribbed, standard

Medium-strength, shallow front-on profile that interlocks to form a solid web.
