Geoflex was developed as a replacement for tropical hard wood in applications such as earth retaining constructions and bank protection. The aim was to produce an economically viable sheet pile with a long service life. An optimal weight/strength ratio was determined with the aid of computer models. This gave rise to two types of profile: the Geoflex 210 and the Geoflex 420.
Vinyl is a material that has excellent resistance to weathering and possesses a long service life. Furthermore, it is unaffected by natural substances that occur in the soil, rodents and salt and fresh water. This makes it possible to develop bank protection and earth retaining constructions with a much enhanced service life.
