MANDRELS - STEEL GUIDE BARS

Installation of vinyl sheet piles with the use of steel guide bars

The key to success in installation in hard, compact substrates and in ramming long elements is the use of special guide bars. It is a steel element with its shape corresponding to the vinyl sheet pile being rammed. The length of mandrels should correspond to that of PVC elements being rammed.

 

Advantages of using mandrels

  • enables ramming sheet piles in very difficult soil environments (compact silt, clay, gravel)
  • enables installation of long profiles, even up to 12 m
  • prevents sheet piles from cracking while being rammed
  • removes obstacles found in soil (roots, stones)
  • helps to maintain straight lines
  • ensures pre-loosening of soil
  • multiple mandrels significantly accelerate installation work
