Soldier Piles & Palisade Walls

Sometimes known as inground walls or barrier pile walls, palisade walls using soldier piles with a capping beam are an effective ground retention solution.

Inground retaining walls utilize deep piles, generally either encased timber or reinforced concrete piles, closely spaced, embedded into the harder subsoils, thus retaining the more unstable upper layers.

Often a capping beam is used to link the piles. In certain circumstances soldier pile walls can be constructed as part of the building/house foundation piles.
