Shoring for Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are typically used to support shallow heights of ground of up to three metres; here adjacent site space is limited or restricted and battering back is not an option. Retaining walls provide a vertical wall face, which will maximise space at the base of the wall. For weak ground conditions and/or depths above three metres, raking props and waler beams may be needed to provide further wall support.
If you’re looking to support a retaining wall, RMD Kwikform has the expertise and a range of solutions to provide you with maximum lateral support for your excavation. Whether you require sheet pile walls or raking props, we’ll ensure our products keep you safe on your groundworks project.
Sheet Pile Walls
Sheet pile walls can be used to retain earth and water on both shallow and deep excavations. For retained heights up to 3.0m, sheet piles can be used in cantilever, providing the support you need to withstand the potential collapse of materials without the need for bracing, whilst keeping you safe during excavation works.TRENCH SHEETS >
Sheet Piles are strong and durable. Commonly used for retaining walls and small and large cofferdams, RMD Kwikform has a variety of lengths and sections available that are compatible with varying ground conditions and loadings.TRENCH SHEETS >
For retaining walls in weak soils and / or heavy loading, raking props provide robust lateral support for deflection control and stabilisation of retaining walls in combination with a waler system.
RMD Kwikform’s ‘NEW’ Tubeshor is available in sizes 320, 610 & 1060 and is the only fully integrated ‘hybrid’ hydraulic bracing system with mechanical lock-off on the market.
