King Post Retaining Walls

Airdrie to Bathgate Railway Works

King post piling is an economical solution for small and medium retained retention systems.

The piles are drilled by either rotary or continuous flight auger methods, and a structural steel section introduced either before or after concreting. Infill panels are then placed between the steel sections to complete the soil retention system.

They can be used for both temporary and permanent retaining walls and usually incorporate piles drilled with diameters ranging from 450mm to 900mm.

King post walls can be used support a future excavation or stabilisation. They are also used in conjunction with noise and crash barriers.
