Steel sheet piles are long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that create a continuous wall. The walls are often used to retain soil, water, or both. The ability of a sheet pile section to perform is dependent upon its geometry and the soils it is driven into. The pile transfers pressure from the retained side of the wall, down through the pile, and into the soil.

Z-shaped sheet piles are called Zs because the single piles are shaped roughly like a horizontally stretched Z. The interlocks are located as far away from the neutral axis as possible to ensure good shear force transmission and increase the strength-to-weight ratio. Z piles are the most common type of sheet pile in North America and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Retaining walls, cofferdams, parking garages, environmental barrier walls, and bulkhead walls for ports are just a few of their varied uses.

SCZ/SKZ piles are cold formed sheet piles produced from steel coil. SCZ/SKZ shapes are generally wide, efficient and allow for greater swing angle than hot rolled sheets. There are many options to choose from that are readily available due to flexible rolling schedules. The SCZ/SKZ product line is made up of five different sizes in several thicknesses. SCZ and SKZ sections range in height from 254-257 mm; in thickness from 6.4-14.0 mm and are 724 mm wide. SKL and SKS sections range in height from 90-150 mm; in thickness from 4.0-7.0 mm and in width from 550-700 mm. The cold formed sheet piles are produced in numerous ASTM steel grades including ASTM A572, ASTM A690, and ASTM A588 and with numerous available yield strengths. The cold formed sheet pile sections can be produced at custom lengths.
