King Post Walls, also known as Soldier Piles, and Berlin Walls may be used in many different retention applications, and different ground conditions.
The installation method comprises of boring a hole with either a CFA or Rotary Rig, concreting the pile and then installing the H Beam ( UC ). The web of the H beam can have pre-stressed concrete panels or timber sleepers inserted between them. Once excavated or back filled against you are left with an embedded retaining wall, used in many applications, including bank stabilisation, flood defences and basements.
