Sheet piling & MD bracingDesigned to be used for large clear span projects, such as Cast-In-Place projects (bridge footings, pump stations), soil remediation’s, large tank installations and linear applications, the GME Sheeting and Bracing is a cost saving system compared to traditional weld and cuts systems.

Each ring consists of encased hydraulic rams and static extensions. The number of rings, which a Registered Professional Engineer determines, can be stacked on top of each other during initial installation to help speed up installation time. With the addition of our 100 ton and 165 ton struts, projects that exceed 60’ in length are now possible.

The GME MD Brace is designed and engineered to use with a variety of steel sheet piles, enabling users to use existing sheet pile stock, saving time and money. In addition, the MD Brace system can be used in conjunction with traditional weld and cut systems. In particular, for projects that require phasing (an addition of a ring of braces, only meant to be in place for a short period), the MD Brace will save installation and removal time.
