Tidewall vinyl sheet pilings are designed for ground installation, following a process akin to driving steel sheet piles. Multiple techniques and equipment are utilized for this purpose. Explore the various common sheet piling driving methods and options to learn how to install your vinyl sheet pilings effectively.
This procedure includes employing a vibro hammer to lift the sheets while securely embedding them into the ground through vibration simultaneously. It is crucial to emphasize that, for vinyl pilings, it is advisable to use lighter vibro hammers in comparison to the ones commonly used for steel piling.
In areas where the soil has moderate stiffness or lower, vinyl sheet pilings can be efficiently inserted into the ground by employing a plate compactor attached to a backhoe, ensuring a seamless and effective installation process.
In areas characterized by extremely soft soils, a direct compression driving method is successful in installing vinyl sheet pilings. This technique entails employing the backhoe's bucket to exert vertical force on the sheets, guaranteeing a seamless insertion into the ground. It's worth mentioning that this approach is especially well-suited for the heavier vinyl sheet pilings, specifically those with a TW85 rating and above.
A hydraulic hammer is employed to propel the panels into the ground, utilizing impactful force to drive them deep into the soil and ensure secure anchoring. This technique is known for its efficiency, durability, and environmental friendliness, making it a widely favored option. It is advisable to use pile hammers within the 300-800 pound range for driving vinyl sheet pilings.
