Various stock locations, with a vast quantity of sheet piles

Intra BV has various stock locations where a vast quantity of sheet piles is being kept. We have two factories in Europe for production, which are located in Belgium and in the Czech Republic.

  • With these advantages not only time, but also money is saved by our customers.

How INTRA Expanding Seal helps you out with contaminated soil conditions

INTRA Expanding Seal is a sealant with swelling qualities/properties on polyurethane basis and this is why it has a good chemical resistance. For example, at this project, with contaminated soil conditions, it was much needed to construct tubs of sheet piles which are watertight and resistant to chemicals.

Not only does the INTRA Expanding Seal has got good chemical resistance, it also makes sure to have a watertight seal. The seal expands up to 350% of its original volume when in contact with moist, which makes it a watertight seal. All this comes to great value when in need for over approximately 112 kilometers of sheet pile locks.

The three best kinds of surface treatment

For some projects it is necessary to protect your steel and we offer you the necessary and three best surface treatments to help you. You can opt for better protection against corrosion or better aesthetics.

We offer three kinds of surface treatments;

  1. Coatings
    1. We supply all coating systems including the necessary certificates
  2. Galvanizing
    1. We can deliver our products hot dipped galvanized
  3. Cathodic Protection (Anti Corrosion)

Cathodic protection (anti corrosion) is a different kind of surface treatment. It is used to decrease the effect of corrosion and extend the life span of steel significantly. The sacrificial Anode is attached to the steel pile and Anode will literally sacrifices itself. For the calculated period of time only the Anode will corrode and the steel remains in original condition. There are numerous variations in the dimension and characteristics of the Anodes. Our engineering department calculates the most effective and economical Anode to extend the lifespan of the steel. We work closely together with Anode mills to assure the best quality and fast deliveries.

Would you like to know what we can do for you and your products regarding surface treatment? Please get in contact with us by sending an e-mail or give us a call. Our specialists would love to provide you with all the answers you need and give you the best advice.

The story behind Intra BV

You don’t need to have structural steel in stock to realize earth or water retaining structures. We specialize in selling and renting all kinds of steel products. Jelle Veldhuizen explains in his blog more about large stocks, own production capacity and thinking in terms of solutions.

My father, Addy Veldhuizen, started Intra BV from home in 2004. After working for a supplier of sheet piles for several years, he started selling sheet piles himself. Now we work with a team of 31 employees and we provide the sector with all necessary steel profiles for soil and water-retaining structures.

Whether it concerns sheet piles, pipes, beams, bracing or anchors: together we look for the best solutions and applications for you as a customer. We can provide a complete design, or we can help optimize a ground- or water-retaining construction. Thanks to our large stock, our own production facilities and our worldwide network of cooperating companies, we always have the right solution within reach. We are one of the largest players in the industry worldwide!

We supply both hot-rolled and cold-formed sheet piles in all common profile shapes. With our own production facilities such as a rolling line, a modification department and press brakes, we are able to deliver the ultimate customization. We deliver ready-made products not only in terms of size, but also in terms of shape. From submitting DWG files to complete sheet pile calculations: we support you on all fronts.

Steel products
In addition to purchasing various profiles, you can also contact us for steel products that are temporarily made available for a project. This can be done on the basis of a rental or purchase-repurchase agreement. We also have equipment such as Silentpilers, ABI piling rigs, vibratory hammers and power packs. We never feel too big for small projects and we are certainly not too small for large projects!

Intra B.V. also supplier of corner profiles

We supply large batches of corner profiles from production, for example to keep your stock up to standard. But you can also contact us for emergencies: we deliver immediately from our own stock! We offer a suitable solution for every conceivable corner connection!

We are happy to advise you on customization and connections between different types of sheet pile profiles. For example, did you know that corner profiles are not required at all for cold-set sheet piles? We can have sheet piling installed at any specified angle, so that they are delivered ready-to-use to your location.

Delivery from stock
Do you not have the time or opportunity to weld the corner profiles to the sheet pile on site? We are happy to do it for you! We can have sheet piling installed at any specified angle, so that they are delivered ready-to-use at your location. All our corner profiles are directly available from stock. We have extensive stock of profiles: a unique service!

Project Strecke 2000 Werne

Commissioned by the Deutsche Bahn, we have carried out a very large order, in which we faced several challenges. In this blog, our German colleague Sigfried Steins, together with Dick Veldhuizen, explains more about this special work.

“The first question was whether we could proceed to the delivery of seven thousand tons of sheet piling and 350 tons of horizontal anchors from our own production within a period of a few weeks,” says Sigfried. “The sheet piles must support a dam on which a railway line will be built. The challenge was the different dimensions of the sheet piling.”, adds Dick. Sigfried: “The other challenge was that during the work the diameter of the horizontal anchors had to be adjusted on the basis of calculations by the client.”

Dick: “We addressed the first challenge by drawing up a very tight schedule in the preparation phase, in collaboration with the client. They could exactly indicate which different dimensions of sheet piles had to be installed at what time. Based on this data, we were able to organise our production in such a way that the three hundred trucks could deliver the correct sheet pile format at the location in Werne in the Ruhr area at exactly the right time.”

Horizontal anchors
Sigfried: “The specifications of the horizontal anchors changed last minute. We anticipated on these changes through years of close cooperation with our production site in Germany. By acting quickly, we were able to find a solution in the short time that was given to us!” That did not go unnoticed. Sigfried: “The client said he had never experienced such an adequate service before!”

Sigfried continues: “We are one of the few companies in Europe that can successfully complete assignments of such a large scale in such a short period of time. So, in December 2019 we were mandated for this assignment, late January 2020 the first delivery took place and in June 2020 we completed the project. Exactly within the set schedule! The contractor is very pleased with the cooperation with Intra BV.”
