While there are various options available, steel-based retaining walls have distinct advantages over other retaining systems:
Traditionally, each manufacturer presents its own proprietary product and sells through a set channel. This process makes comparison by an end-user/contractor difficult.
iSheetPile and its patented comparison tools eliminate the proprietary terminology and systems designation. We do so by using precise, specific and empirical engineering parameters to provide more accurate and relevant comparisons of steel piling components.
This allows end-users, contractors and engineers to compare the benefits of “manufacturer A” with “manufacturer B” on an even footing so that they may arrive at the most practical and cost-effective solution.
Perception: steel becomes rusty and brittle. Reality: steel naturally acquires rust, but rust acts as a coating (like a patina) and can actually protect the structure from further corrosion damage. Loss of strength due to corrosion does occur; but the amount of time before the loss is structurally significant is quite long (50-150 years in most environments), and the process can be further retarded with the use of coatings and by designing structures (combi-walls) that incorporate beams in addition to sheets. Please see the resources section for more information about corrosion.
Recent developments in pile driving technology have nearly eliminated the noise and vibration traditionally associated with installation. Steel sheet piling is now considered as a first-choice material for sites where environmental disturbance must be minimized, such as those adjacent to hospitals, within urban areas, and near cable, pipeline, or sensitive computer facilities.
All hot-rolled steel sheet piling has a recycled content of up to 99% and meets the materials and resources credits of the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System. Hot-rolled sheet piling is considered very “green.” And, as mentioned above, the installation process is now environmentally friendlier too.
