The development of an improved GU hot rolled sheet pile produced in Dabrowa, Poland, was triggered by the amazing success of the existing GU 600 range in new markets.
Major development was to modify the interlock shape such to become fully compliant with the ArcelorMittal LARSSEN interlock already produced in the sheet pile rolling mills in Belval and Rodange, Luxembourg.
A second improvement was to optimize the steel thicknesses of the new sections for higher efficiency in the section modulus range range of 600 - 800 cm³/m.
The new GU N and GU S sections have already been rolled, and replace the existing GU 600 range from beginning of June 2009 on. They are available in lengths up to 22.0 m as double piles, respectively 24.0 m as single piles, in steel grades up to S 355 GP. Please contact our technical department for other steel grades or for further details.
