Model Z-Type - Steel Sheet Piling
From Steel Sheet Piling
Z-shaped sheet piles are called Z’s, 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 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.
AZ Sheet Piles
The AZ range of sheet piles is the most advanced in the world. Arbed introduced the AZ line in 1990 and is committed to continuously improving the sections through ongoing, aggressive research. The AZ's now cover the widest range of strengths representing the strongest, most efficient sheet piles in the industry.
PZ Sheet Piles
PZ sections have been manufactured in the US for many years and are widely recognized by the ball and socket interlock. The PZ sections are good sections for reuse because of their compactness and the durability of the interlock. The ball and socket interlock also allows as much as ten degrees of swing for turning tight curves on the jobsite.
SCZ/SKZ Sheet Piles
SCZ/SKZ piles are cold formed sheet piles produced from steel coil. SCZ/SKZ shapes are generally wide, light, and efficient and are usually used in lighter applications than hot rolled sheets. There are many options to choose from due to the ease of manufacturing. The variety of SCZ/SKZ sections is made up of five different sizes in several thicknesses. The interlock on the SCZ/SKZ piles allows 10 degrees of swing.
