In addition to seawalls and bulkheads, ShoreGuard and UltraComposite sheet piling are commonly used in the construction of Water Control applications such as baffle walls, weirs, silt fences and breakwaters. Projects ranging from small retention ponds to the largest fresh water diversion structure in the world. ShoreGuard and UltraComposite sheets have revolutionized the industry by providing a cost-effective, sustainable building material which can provide a long service life without toxic coatings or preservatives.
The top project engineers and marine contractors in the world choose to design with and install CMI Sheet Piling for projects like acid mine drainage and various dewatering operations. Much of the success of ShoreGuard sheet piling is due to its excellent corrosion resistance and XCR Manufacturing Technologies. XCR integrates state-of-the-art material processing, high precision die technology, and vinyl formulations based on 65 years of experience. The newest ShoreGuard factory is the only facility of its kind in the world, designed from the ground up to produce synthetic sheet piling. Completed in 2006, it employs sophisticated recycling processes, patented extrusion technology and world class quality control procedures that drastically reduce ShoreGuard's carbon footprint.
In addition to ShoreGuard, CMI also offers UltraComposite sheet piling and piles. Designers are more frequently choosing to use UltraComposite sheets and round piles as a Value Engineered replacement for some steel. UltraComposite sheets and round piles are the strongest synthetic structural marine products available anywhere in the world. They are sustainable, low maintenance, cost-effective and typically installed with conventional pile driving equipment.
In addition, to increase the durability of marine structures CMI offers components like TimberGuard, ArmorCap, ArmorWale, and ArmorRods. These proprietary structural piles, wales, caps and tie-rod systems are low maintenance options to traditional materials such as treated wood, concrete, and galvanized steel. Used in conjunction with ShoreGuard and UltraComposite products, these components can help maximize the service life of your structure.
If you are designing or installing baffle walls, weirs, silt fences, breakwaters or diversion and dewatering structures then call CMI today!
