1.0 General Preparation

Selection of Poles:

  • Choice of Material: The choice of your posts is crucial. For optimal strength, choose cylindrically milled pine posts with strength class C18 or higher. These are strong enough to withstand the pressure of the earth and provide the basis for your revetment.
  • Not Preserved: The posts should not be pre-treated with chemicals, so that you can enjoy an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution.
  • Preparation for Harder Ground: In harder ground types, pre-drilling a hole or using water injection can make installing the posts easier.
  • Extra Strength: If you need more load-bearing capacity above the waterline, hardwood poles or steel tubes are a better choice.

2.0 Installing Screen and Post

The Support Frame:

  • Construction of the Subframe: A well-built subframe serves as a guide and support during installation of the screens. Use sturdy material such as steel or hardwood and ensure a distance of at least 12 cm between the screens to be able to vibrate them perpendicularly and in line.

Mounting the Screens:

  • Connecting: Connect the screens securely together at the T-end. Make sure the dark brown side faces out for an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Correct position:

  • Installing perpendicularly: It is important that both the screens and the posts go into the ground perpendicularly. This ensures a stable construction and prevents future subsidence.

3.0 Application of the Corner Needle Profile

Construction of Corners:

  • Up to 15 degrees: For slight bends you can use the existing lock connection of the Prolock system.
  • Flexibility: The Prolock corner needle profile is designed to give you more flexibility when creating corners. It allows you to create angles from 10 to 110 degrees without additional tools or complex adjustments.

4.0 Anchor and Purlin

More Firmness:

  • Placing anchors: Ground anchors hold your revetment in place and you place them every 100 cm to 150 cm, but check the strength calculation for how heavy and large your revetment is.

Installing purlins:

  • What are Purlins? Purlins are long, sturdy beams that lie on top of or behind the sheet piling screens. They distribute the pressure and help keep everything straight.
  • Getting Started: Place the purlins horizontally at the correct height and make sure they are level. Screw or bolt them to the posts for a solid structure.

Connect Everything:

  • Installing Tie Rods: Tie rods are the strong arms that connect your anchors and purlins. They ensure that everything remains sturdy, even if the ground moves or the water rises. Attach the rods from the anchors to the purlins, and tighten everything properly.

    5.0 Cover Laying

    The Finish:

    • Mounting the Cover: Attach the cover to the tube of the bulkhead for a nice and sleek finish of the top. Use 10 x 160 carriage bolts for this.

    A Tight Top:

    • Leveling: Make sure the top of the screen is level by cutting it where necessary. This ensures a good and professional looking finish.

    Alternative: Cover caps

    Aesthetic Finish:

    • Installing Cover Caps: The cover caps not only protect the end points of your sheet piling, but also provide a neat and finished look. Place them at an angle of 30° and secure them with stainless steel self-tapping screws.

    6.0 Soil Filling

    The Finishing Touch:

    • Replacing the Earth: Fill the space behind the bulkhead carefully. Compact the soil carefully to avoid putting too much pressure on the newly installed revetment.
