Definition of sheet piles
Sheet piles are sections of sheet steel with interlocking edges that are driven into the ground to provide permanent or temporary earth retention and excavation support.

10 Advantages to Sheet Piles:
- Sheet piles are recyclable and reusable.
- Piles can come in a wide range of lengths, size, and steel options.
- They can be used for temporary and permanent structures.
- They can be installed using silent and vibration-free methods.
- The work is neat, clean, and creates no spoil arisings. The supervision of work on-site can be reduced, and minimal storage space is required.
- Sheet piling is a more cost effective and quicker installation than contiguous or secant walls.
- Cofferdams can be constructed in almost any desired shape, however, for practical and economy reasons, most cofferdams are either rectangular or circular.
- Sheet piles can provide a close-fitting joint to form an effective water seal.
- They have a long life above and below water, making them advantageous for marine and coastal projects.
- Anchored sheet piled walls can provide even more flexibility for installation purposes.
