U PROFILE SHEET PILES
The ESC-CRU series is a cold rolled sheet pile profile. U-shaped steel sheet piles have long been familiar to designers and constructors because of the long-standing traditions and technologies, and are widely used for permanent structures, temporarily installed soil-retaining construction and temporary cofferdams. ESC-CRU profiles provide an economic alternative to Hot Rolled U Sheet Piles as they are of similar size and possess similar structural properties, with a section modulus ranging from 500cm3/m all the way up to 4,650cm3/m. With over 50 choices in profile, the CRU series sheet piles allow greater fine tuning in the design for the most economical solution.

ESC is able to offer 3 options for Corner Pile configurations in the ESC-CRU Series. Option 1 is frequently used when the installation contractor prefers to create their own corner piles on site depending on the as-driven layout. However this produces wastage on the offcut pile. Option 2 allows welding at the mill or on site and provides the installation contractor with more flexibility on corner pile location. Option 3 provides an option with no welding required and provides increased accuracy at corners that are deviated from the typical 90˚ corner.
ESC-CRU Series Sheet Piles can be combined to create special arrangements. These combined sections presented can greatly amplify the bending strength of a single section by over 5 times. Box Piles with intermediate standard U Piles can be designed. The welded box section can also be incorporated along a certain section of the length where the bending moments are the highest. Please contact our engineering department at if you would like to receive more information about the presented combined pile systems.
