FRP panels to repair corroded and damaged steel sheet piles

SPiRe repair system uses impermeable, engineered FRP panels to repair corroded and damaged steel sheet piles, without interruption of service.

FRP panels to repair corroded and damaged steel sheet piles

The SPiRe (Sheet Pile Repair) system, developed by and available exclusively from PileMedic by QuakeWrap, is an innovative new system of repairing and restoring corroded seawalls made of steel sheet pile, both above and below water, using FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer) composites.

SPiRe uses custom, proprietary FRP panels made of lightweight honeycomb 3D fabric layered between sheets of resin-saturated fabric. These panels match the shape of the steel sheet pile or concrete seawall being repaired, and are impervious to water, forming a barrier in front of the wall that keeps oxygen – and thus further corrosion – away. 

SPiRe can be installed directly on submerged sheet piles without the use of coffer dams or heavy equipment. Both the SPiRe and PileMedic pile repair systems combine reliability, ease of installation and impermeable FRP materials to give your sheet pile or seawall repair the corrosion-proof strengthening it needs.
