PAZ Sections

PAZ sections are the most cost-effective type of cold formed steel sheet piles.

Their high width of up to 857 mm (single pile) reduces significantly the installation time at the job site. They are particularly well adapted for reinforcing dams and river or canal banks.

PAZ sections have elastic section modulus up to 2 500 cm3/m, with thicknesses varying from 5.0 up to 10.0 mm. They can be delivered as single or double piles, in two different forms, with or without handling holes. Double piles are usually delivered with the common interlocks partially welded at regular intervals.

Note that PAZ sections can only be threaded with specific series of cold formed sections (different interlock shapes), and that the 10.0 mm thick sheets cannot be supplied at this moment in steel grades S 275 JRC and above.
