Vinyl Sheet Piling and Bulkhead Seawall Materials

CMI offers over 30 different vinyl sheet piling profiles for residential and commercial use.

To help you, we have listed the most popular residential seawall options below.

Most homeowners choose to go with ShoreGuard vinyl bulkheads as they are cost-effective, long lasting and plastic sheet piling requires little to no maintenance. Aluminum bulkheads & composite bulkheads are also available through CMI.

If youʼre considering an aluminum, composite, or vinyl bulkhead, the sheet piling you choose may also need a cap, tie-backs and walers to complete construction. Learn more about these sheet piling materials on our components page.

ShoreGuard Vinyl Sheet Piling

ShoreGuard, the original vinyl sheet piling, revolutionized the sheet piling industry 25 years ago. Until the creation of ShoreGuard, most seawalls & bulkheads were made of steel, concrete, or treated wood.

ShoreGuard has provided a more cost- effective, sustainable and attractive building material for seawalls that can be installed easier and last a lifetime without toxic coatings or preservatives.

ShoreGuard vinyl sheet piling is corrosion resistant, UV resistant and impervious to marine worm damage. See for yourself why ShoreGuard is the top choice for homeowners & contractors worldwide.

UltraComposite Sheet Piling 

Composite materials have been used for decades in structural applications including bridges, oil rig production platforms, and military armor. UltraComposite sheet piling is one of the most advanced building materials and offers many advantages over wood bulkheads. However, for residential seawall applications, composite sheet piling typically exceeds the necessary strength requirements. To see examples of UltraComposite sheet piling projects with the US Army Corps of Engineers, the United States Navy or other large entities, visit our civil website,
