Deviation limits and dimensional tolerances for hot rolled steel sheet piles made of unalloyed steel according to din en 10 248-2.

  • Pile width                                
    Single piles ± 2%; double and triple piles ± 3%
  • Wall thickness                           
    t: up to 8.5 mm = ± 0.5 mm; over 8.5 mm = ± 6 % t
  • U-Sections                               
    s: up to 8.5 mm = – 0.5 mm; over 8.5 mm = – 6 % s
  • Wall thickness, Z-Sections and flat sections    
    t, s: up to 8.5 mm = ± 0.5 mm; over 8.5 mm = ± 6 % s, t
  • Height of U-Sections                   
    h: up to 200 mm = ± 4 mm; over 200 mm = ± 5 mm
  • Height of Z- Sections                   
    h: up to 200 mm = ± 5 mm; from 200 to 300 mm = ± 6 mm; over 300 mm = ± 7 mm
  • Deviation from straightness           
    The longitudinal deviation from straightness must not exceed 0.2% of pile length
  • Pile length                               
    Sheet pile lengths are permitted to deviate by ± 200 mm from the ordered lengths
  • Cut                                        
    Cut at right angle to the longitudinal axis. The total deviation between the highest and lowest points in the cutting plane, measured on a single pile along the longitudinal axis, must not exceed 2% of pile width
  • Weight                                   
    The tolerance between the arithmetic weight (according to section tables) and weighed weight of the total consignment must be within ± 5%
  • Section interlocks                       
    The interlocks shall have adequate free play so that the piles can be fitted into each other and they must engage in such a manner, that the forces necessary for the calculated connection can be transmitted
