The keys to success in every project are the right equipment and coordinated technical support. In addition to our products, which customers can either purchase or hire, our portfolio includes a broad variety of services designed to help you get the job done more efficiently.
Special requirements and unexpected developments can arise in any project. We offer effective bespoke services to cover all eventualities.
Anchors and fittings
We can supply all the anchor equipment to suit your requirements from one source. The range includes:
- Anchors and anchor components
- Anchor connecting elements
- Walings and waling fixings
- Sheet pile cappings
- Recesses, ladders, grab bars
This system, with a German national technical approval, transfers static and dynamic vertical loads directly, i.e. without intermediate fittings, from the reinforced concrete support to the sheet pile cross-section.
This system helps to prevent declutching in difficult soil conditions. The signal transmitter, fitted securely to the base of the section to be threaded, indicates declutching instantly so that effective measures can be taken in good time.
The equipment used to install sheet piles can cause vibrations in the ground. The MÜLLER data collection system MS-DATA is available to monitor vibrations in accordance with DIN 4150. Permanent monitoring of the operating parameters of the vibrator automatically prevents set vibration limits for ground or buildings from being exceeded.
Our plants have been fabricating welded structures from steel piles for many decades. All our sheet piling steel grades are suitable for arc welding in compliance with general welding regulations.
Foundation piles, dolphins plus fittings, box piles, structural piles such as corner and junction piles, piles with impact strengthening, piles with interlocks sealed by welding, and custom piles to suit special requirements are all fabricated to proven quality standards.
Our plants conform to DIN EN 1090 EXC 1-4 and hence comply with all the requirements that must be met by modern welding operations. General and specific quality assurance procedures, e.g. non-destructive weld seam testing, are carried out by an independent institute according to German or, if required, international regulations.
Three forms of corrosion protection are available to enhance the durability of sheet piling – and hence increase the chances of success for your project: coating, hot-dip galvanizing and cathodic corrosion protection
The choice of coating system depends on the corrosion loads expected and the design life (see also DIN EN ISO 12944). Owing to the high loads to which steel sheet piling is usually exposed, epoxy resin or polyurethane coatings are normally used. Such coatings are also compatible with the tk interlock sealing system.
Hot-dip galvanizing is another method of corrosion protection and is also compatible with the tk interlock sealing system. It can also be combined with a coating (duplex system) to yield additional benefits. The requirements of DIN EN ISO 1461 must be adhered to.
Cathodic corrosion protection
Corrosion of steel sheet piling below the waterline can be largely eliminated by the use of cathodic corrosion protection. This is particularly recommended in areas where renewing protective coatings or repairing corrosion damage is technically very difficult. These areas must be taken into account in planning.
The steel grades used for our hot-rolled steel piles comply with EN 10248-1 or JIS 5528.
On request, steels complying with EN 10025 (structural steels), EN 10155 (weather steels) or other standard specifications can also be supplied.
Cold rolled sheet piles are supplied in grade S 355 JR according to EN 10249-1. Higher grades can be manufactured at request.
