Intended to slot into each other to create a sealed wall, our sheet piles are designed to retain earth or water to create quay walls, dams, underground car parks, tunnels, bridges and trunk roads. They are designed either to be an integral part of the finished product, or only to be used during construction work, to secure the excavation needed to build the actual structure itself.

There are many methods used to create temporary retention structures, and most use concrete because those using steel are frequently found to be too expensive per square metre of wall.


Furthermore, we also rent out most of our sheet piles, which makes temporary steel solutions even more attractive. Every excavation project has its own specific requirements in terms of type of sheet pile, length and finish, and construction companies can no longer, in terms of cost, maintain the entire range of sections available in their own stocks to cover the potential structural needs of all their projects. ArcelorMittal has developed several service centres which carefully recondition used sheet piles and ensure that the products rented to the next building site are of impeccable quality.

The re-use of these sheet piles on several occasions in different projects fits clearly within the circular economy model. Our sheet pile solutions have become more cost-efficient, which increases their use in temporary excavation projects and reduces the use of less environmentally friendly solutions which cannot be recycled.
