Who are we?

 
APE Plastic Piling is a leading authority on plastic sheet piling; particularly with regard to how these product are installed, what equipment is needed and available for your job.   We are constant innovators, combining the most advanced plastic sheet piling from world leading producers, with our own invention and design of piling equipment.  We have proven time and time again that we have the best products, and this is only possible through our constant innovation.
 
APE were the first to introduce plastic sheet pile designs that did not copy traditional steel designs; these advanced sheet piling designs provide better performance in terms of installation and use.  These unique designs carry forward sheet pile design, beyond that of what can be accomplished with steel.
 
Offering plastic piling that is strong and rigid enough to be driven, is only part of the solution. One must also provide innovative methods and equipment to install these sheet piles.  APE offers a full range of handheld equipment, air hammers, small excavator mounted vibrator and now the UK's first, Movax Lite Side Grip Vibrator. The first Movax to be available on a non-operated hire basis, to suit your 5 - 8 tone mini excavator. 
 
APE, also produced the world's first side and Internal mandrels, these are available for hire for any type of plastic sheet pile.  They provide substantial improvements in installation speed and also safety.
 
APE, in conjunction with the TRL and Cranfield University conducted the world's first Carbon foot printing study on the full life cycle of plastic sheet piling, including production, transportation and use.  
 
 
Where do we get the equipment from to install the piles? Right here!
 
APE plastic piling is your one stop shop for plastic piles and the equipment required to install them, including the latest in hand held equipment, piling vibrators, Movax and piling mandrels.  Plastic sheet piling is made from recycled PVC, and has been available for close to 20 years in the UK. Early products were extremely lightweight and so limited in terms of drivability and load support.  It is only with the introduction of the heavy duty Z and U sheet piles and most recently the advanced sheet piles, MultiLock – the Hex pile, ProLock and Truline; that plastic piling became to realise its true potential – as a viable sheet pile.
 
Sheet Piling is a long established technique used in major civil engineering projects.   Applications typically are those that need to retain or exclude, and this remains true with plastic sheet piling.  .  Plastic Piling soon found a niche in water control applications, particularly scour and erosion control, landscaping, ditch blocking and flood management.
 
Is it cheaper than steel?
This is perhaps the one question we get asked most, and in fairness it was one touted a lot by the early producers of the budget plastic piles.  In realty this only hold for applications where strength is irrelevant so long as the pile can be driven to depth – for instance cut-off walls.  In this scenario the excellent longevity of the plastic piling combined with the good water tightness, enables these product to compete with much more expensive hot rolled steel sheet piling.
 
When strength is an issue, then products be they plastic or steel should be fairly price comparable, but price stable, unlike steel, plastic pile prices do not fluctuate from week to the next and so we can offer you price stability.   
 
Plastic piling hold many advantages over steel, including longevity, chemical resistance, lightness, spark proof and with the recent introduction of APE’s advanced plastic piles aesthetic is a key area, these new plastic piles look good.
  
Some applications need the properties of plastic but with the strength of steel, others want better value or economy, other sites have severe access restriction and so are limited in terms of what equipment they can use.   For these sites we are pleased to offer the original APE system hybrid technology combining plastic, timber, steel and concrete.   Combining the best of both materials!
