Burlin Walls

Print PDF



Burlin walls are an effective and economic earth retention  system  used for the excavation support  and shoring works, where ground water table is located below the final excavation depth. The construction of burlin walls is based on the installation of steel soldier piles at equal spacing as either CFA or bored piles. The installation of cladding diaphragm is normally carried out  within the progress of excavation. Cladding between soldier piles is normally carried out using one of the following techniques and materials: - Concrete precast panels installed between steel sections. - Wooden lagging (Timber sleepers). - Sprayed concrete infill (Shotcrete) Burlin walls  when installed with ground anchors and/or  struts,  allow for deeper excavations and control the size of steel sections  used for the soldier piles.
