Flood Protection

Sheet pile walls can be used in a variety of ways for flood defence systems.

For new river embankments they can ensure watertightness, support and stabilization. They are also used to strengthen existing embankments.

With a sheet pile wall, not only can an embankment be made watertight, but it can also be modified to hold back a larger design flood without requiring greater footprint. This is a simple matter of designing the sheet pile wall to project the requisite height above the crest.

When space is an issue, e.g. in ports or urban areas, sheet pile walls can form freestanding floodwalls (small footprint) to replace a flood embankment (large footprint).
