Sheet and Frame System
The Sheet and Frame System is a flexible, reliable way to safely shore trenches that are large, irregularly shaped, three-sided and in all types of soil. Mabey's sheet pile comes in a variety of sizes along with walers and bracing struts as part of the kit.
The Advantages of the Mabey's Sheet and Frame System
- System works great in groundwater conditions. Vibratory installation allows sheets to be driven before the pit is excavated, avoiding problems with water pressure. Clutched sheets work in conjunction with dewatering systems to control water. Hydraulic frames can be configured by our engineers to handle a wide range of soil/water pressures.
- Vibratory installation and removal is a low-impact process, good for crowded jobsites and areas where traditional hammers would do damage to adjacent structures.
- Hydraulic walers work with our sheet piling to provide excavation support for a wide variety of pit sizes and shapes, without having to cut and weld steel walers.
- The sheet/frame system can be removed and moved from pit to pit in applications where multiple pits of similar size are being excavated, saving time and money (no need for multiple shoring systems).
