Designers dealing with the construction of aesthetic barriers must take into account various aspects. First of all the choice of materials. We also must think in the long term, opting for solutions that ensure good durability over time and can save with regard to the maintenance and handling on the construction site.

The interest towards sustainability and the need to optimize costs without sacrificing quality have determined the success of pultruded sheet piles that have been preferred for some time now by designers who would like to exceed the natural limits of steel, for example the major maintenance and an unpleasant aesthetics characterized by a need of bringing into play a double and even in some cases a triple chamber.

Thanks to their lightness and possible management without bringing into play excessive maintenance activities, pultruded sheet piles are suitable for this purpose. However, it is essential to choose the right sheet piles on the basis of various needs, in order to make the most of the potential.

The use of pultruded sheet piles is linked to a very wide range of sectors. Among requirements to be met, there is also the construction of aesthetic barriers, a situation in which pultruded sheet piles are also an advantageous opportunity of choosing the right colours.

Sheet piles can be used for insertions up to 6 meters for the construction of aesthetic barriers – contexts where it is not necessary to determine large bearing capacities. In this specific case, when speaking about pultruded sheet piles have been designed with the specific purpose of replacing sheet pilesmade of wood or PVC rather than of steel. Two materials that can be surpassed by the performance of light pultruded sheet piles, to be easily handled on a construction siteand excellent for the visual quality and harmonization with the surrounding environment for constructions so important.

Pultruded sheet piles represent a very innovative solution for designers working in the construction and mechanical field, so that it was possible to overcome the natural limit of steel, a traditional material that is now outdated, such as the construction of aesthetic barriers.

Why? Because technology that enables the production of pultruded sheet piles can satisfy different types of requirements and complete the achievements, offering the possibility to save costs in a consistent manner.

Pultruded sheet piles can be produced in different models. In all cases, as described above, it is possible to exceed considerably the performance of steel with regard to resistance against corrosive agents – which translates into significant savings from the point of view of costs – but also to lightness and resistance.

At this point we have to go into the details on different types of pultruded sheet piles. It is also possible to build sheet pilesintended to large bearing capacities. These options arise with the specific purpose of replacing sheet pilesmade of iron and they are in this case characterized by many advantages, taking into account the aspects mentioned above, but also the possibility to choose colours. This is very interesting, when speaking about aesthetic barriers that should harmonize with the surrounding environment.

There is also a solution for low bearing capacities; this option arises with the specific purpose of replacing sheet pilesmade of wood or PVC. In this case the specific purpose is the production of aesthetic barriers.

These pultruded sheet piles are usually used for insertions up to 6 meters. In all these cases it is possible to appreciate a special lightness – pultruded sheet piles weigh five times less than those of steel – allowing an excellent handling on a construction site.
