Solines supplied more than 5500 metres of pipe of Ø 139.7mm and Ø 152.4mm for Prolock plastic shoringDavey Wieffering
For the project quay improvement for the Voorvliet and Montfoortse canal, Solines supplied over 5500 metres of pipe Ø 139.7 mm and Ø 152.4 mm
These pipe piles are used in combination with 300 metres of Prolock plastic shoring. The plastic screen holds the soil, and the often longer piles ensure the strength and stiffness of the overall structure.
A Prolock shoring has the great advantage that it has a life expectancy of 50 years, which is many times higher than that of a wooden shoring. Normally, pine piles are used, but for very heavy barriers, steel pipe piles are used in various lengths.
Approximately 440 piles were made in Ø 139.7 x 6.0 mm with a pipe length of 9 metres. 145 piles were made in Ø 152.4 x 10.0 mm with a pipe length of 10.5 metres.
quick delivery times
Solines received the contract partly because of its quick delivery times. Where various suppliers could not meet the set delivery obligations, Solines supplied the materials in the desired steel quality, to the required length and within the set delivery period. Thanks to the many national and international contacts with various factories, all pipe sizes can be produced in any desired quality and length with short delivery times.
