Steel Sheet Pile is a pile that is pressed or molded from sheet metal or vinyl so as to interlock with other such piles to form a retaining wall or other piling installation. .
Steel sheet piles are long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that creates a continuous wall. The walls are most often used to retain either soil or water. The ability of a sheet pile section to perform is dependent upon its geometry and the soils it is driven into.
It is used as an earth retention and excavation support. It keeps soil back by using steel sheets that interlock to create a strong barrier. If the wall is excessively long or tall then anchors will need to be added to support the weight of the earth pushing against it. Steel sheet piling has been used to support underground parking garages, basements, foundations, seawalls, etc. Basically they are used in any below grade project requiring a retention wall.
