Milbocker & Sons, Inc. is experienced in installing steel sheet piling, and has also installed vinyl sheets to serve as effective support structures and retention barriers.
Sheet piling is an earth retention support technology to retain soil by using interlocking steel, vinyl, or wood sheet sections. Sheet piles are installed sequentially to a designated depth along a predetermined perimeter. Due to the interlocking sheet piles, they do not only provide to retain soil, they can provide lateral earth support, slope stabilization, and reduce groundwater flow. Vibratory hammers are used to install sheet piles. If soils are too hard or dense, an impact hammer can be used to complete the installation. At certain sites where vibrations are a concern, the sheets can be hydraulically pushed into the ground.
Sheet piles are also a sustainable option since recycled steel is used in their construction, and the piles can often be reused.
