U-Piles

U-piles are well-known around the world and have been used in civil engineering projects for over a century:

The U-pile has several advantages:

  • Wide selection of sections,
  • Excellent statical properties,
  • Highly suitable for re-use and driving into compact soils
  • Excellent installation quality and performance.

All our PalPile hot rolled sheet piles are equipped with the Larssen interlock. PalPile can supply U-piles as double, triple and box piles.
