Methods of Installation

There are a variety techniques and methods to install the Truline retaining wall system with standard installation equipment. The type of equipment used depends on the type of soil and the length of the Truline sheet piling.

  • Driving – This is the most frequently used method for installing sheet piling with granular soil. In this method the piling is pressed into the soil using vibratory hammers or plates. With hard soil and/or longer sheet piling, a steel guided mandrel can be used.
  • Jetting – Jetting of air or water helps loosen, soften or remove the soil under the sheet piling. Jetting along with driving is very effective.
  • Digging – Often when there are hard soils or rock, a trench can be dug first to set the sheet piling into.
