Application of PVC sheet pilling
The improvement and active use coastlines of different water basins are becoming very important today. So, the main point is the coast protection: to protect banks and builds against the effects of water environment.
The most up-to-date technological advances in the extrusion and application of modern chemical additives allow to create a product with high running ability – sheet piling made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
This material (PVC) has a number of benefits over traditional steel, timber or concrete piling; mainly cost, durability, easy of handling and environment, does not rot or rust
The indisputable advantages of applying vinyl sheet piling in hydraulic engineering construction are the less weight and easy installation without using of heavy equipment that reduce on 50% costs for installation as compare with steel piling, and on 75 % as compare with concrete piling. The PVC sheet piling doesn’t need additional coating and intensive care during the long period of using that can be extended to 50 years.
Besides, the environmentally friendly is one of the most important advantage in applying of vinyl pilling.
– High durability
– Mechanical endurance
– Resistance to seasonal temperature drop
– Doesn’t rot or rust
– Design aesthetics
Plastic piling can be installed by mechanical or manual installation. The basic installation methods are:
During the installation you can use boats, equipment based on excavators and arrows as well as independent stations with manual vibratory hammer.
