U Section


Millions of tons of U-shaped sheet piles have been used all over the world for all kind of structures for more than 90 years.

The advantages of U-shaped piles are multiple:

  • wide range of sections forming several series with various geometrical characteristics, enabling the choice of technically and economically optimised sections for each specific project
  • combination of great wave depth and high flange thickness leading to excellent statical properties
  • symmetrical form of single elements resulting in great aptitude for re-use
  • possibility of assembling and fixing piles into pairs at the mill providing better installation quality and performance
