|Flat-profile sheet piling
Crane Materials International says its ShoreGuard FlatPanel 475 vinyl sheet piling profile provides a modern look and delivers more strength and versatility than market alternatives. The shape of the FP-475 has less play and more stiffness allowing it to drive straighter and endure more rugged handling than corrugated sheet piling. FlatPanel provides an even, continuous surface to attach corresponding CMI wales and cap, simplifying the installation of additional wall components. It can be used in seawalls, retaining walls, flood protection, and water control.
