Description

The CompositeZ™ 100 is a light to moderate-duty fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) or composite sheet pile section that is ideal for bulkhead/seawall applications where corrosion resistance is of concern. The CompositeZ™ 100 has higher strength and stiffness than comparable vinyl sections, is lightweight and easy to handle and install.

*Apparent modulus of elasticity is based on the measured deflection of two interlocked sheets piles loaded in flexure. The apparent modulus of elasticity includes shear deformations and should be appropriate for most bulkhead applications. For walls with multiple wales, the shear deformations should be checked.
