For Marine Structures such as seawalls and bulkheads, CMI manufactures three innovative brands of sheet piling which provide value added sustainable solutions for the construction and engineering communities. Our sheet piling brands all offer high performance, long life-cycle and low environmental impact solutions at substantial cost savings. ShoreGuard, the original vinyl sheet piling, revolutionized the sheet piling industry twenty-five years ago. Until the creation of ShoreGuard, most seawalls and bulkheads were made of steel, concrete, or treated wood.
ShoreGuard has provided a more cost-effective, sustainable and attractive building material for seawalls that can be installed easier and provide a long service-life without toxic coatings or preservatives. ShoreGuard vinyl sheet piling is corrosion resistant, UV resistant and impervious to marine worm damage. ShoreGuard is the top choice for homeowners and contractors worldwide.
Composite materials have been used for decades in structural applications including bridges, oil rig production platforms and even as military armor. CMI's UltraComposite sheet piling is a cutting-edge building product that offers many advantages over traditional materials such as steel. Compared to steel UltraComposite is more corrosion resistance, easier to handle and ship and can provide substantial cost-savings. UltraComposite is often specified for seawalls in areas that do not want sheet piling that requires toxic coatings or continual maintenance.
CMI also can supply GatorAluminum sheet piling. From airplanes to high performance race cars aluminum is a commonly utilized, proven and trusted building material. GatorAluminum is a line of marine grade sheets from CMI that have been used for over 40 years in the construction of seawalls and bulkheads. GatorAluminum sheets possess a high strength to weight ratio and are produced with a special marine alloy. In addition, GatorAluminum sheet piling exhibits excellent corrosion resistance making it a high performing, low maintenance material in harsh environments like salt water.
