ArcelorMittal presents latest steel innovations at Bauma 2016
To heighten awareness of the huge advantages of steel sheet pile solutions, ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling is on hand at Bauma 2016 to introduce its latest solutions to a wider audience.
Notably, ArcelorMittal announces the launch of its new AS500® x 13.0 straight web sheet pile. Straight web sheet piles are used to form cylindrical structures in large-scale construction projects, generally closed and filled with soil. The weight of this internal soil mass guarantees the stability of the construction. ArcelorMittal’s latest product is the heaviest straight web section on the market today, with a unique interlocking strength of 6000kN/m per default and high resistance to corrosion due to its increased thickness.
The group is also presenting its new AZ® - XL range at Bauma 2016, a wider, lighter generation of sheet piles launched in 2015 in response to a steady increase in demand for greater sheet pile widths. ArcelorMittal’s sheet piles are used worldwide for the construction of quay walls and harbours, locks and breakwaters, for bank reinforcement on rivers and canals, as well as bridge abutments, underground car parks and other foundation structures in different soil conditions.
Amit Sengupta, Chief Marketing Officer at ArcelorMittal Europe, said: “Our clients need to build reliable structures as rapidly and cost-effectively as possible. ArcelorMittal’s sheet piles are characterised by excellent section modulus to weight ratios and high moments of inertia, meaning they fulfil every one of these requirements."
