Sheet piling is a type of earth retention system that is designed either as a cantilevered system or in conjunction with tiebacks. Sheeting is used most commonly around water to minimize shoreline erosion, as well as areas that have sandy soil.
Sheet pile comes in a variety of sections and types, with the type dependent on three factors:
- Depth of excavation
- Type of soil
- Performance expectations
