Aluminum Seawall

Aluminum retaining seawall systems are aesthetically pleasing to the eye , strong and durable. They resist rotting, corrosion, cracking, insects and deterioration due to sand, soil and salt water.

For decades aluminum has been resisting corrosion in agriculture, industrial, and residential applications. Aluminum’s resistance to both fresh and salt water is proven by its use in ships, industrial pipes, culverts, heat exchangers and other demanding applications. Similar to vinyl, aluminum seawall is another option chosen for its longevity. Aluminum sheet pilings are a high performance and cost effective product compared to wood, concrete and steel. Water jetting is often used to drive aluminum pilings into soil. Aluminum sheeting has better capabilities of being driven into hard bottom conditions. Aluminum seawalls offer two cap options, such as aluminum or concrete.

Natural aluminum weathers to an attractive matte gray finish. Aluminum retaining seawalls add beauty to any residential or marina site. Its totally engineered design compliments the setting of both waterfront and hillside, with its smooth face and clean lines. One of the most important design criteria to consider when choosing a sheet panel is the strength to weight ratio. This will dictate the strength of panel needed to support the load behind the wall. Aluminum is an excellent material for use when an alternative material, such as vinyl or composite, is not strong enough to be driven into the ground due to tree roots, rock, or clay strata being present under the sand table. Aluminum has the strength to be driven through most obstructions while remaining light enough to install without heavy equipment.
