Flood Wall and Protection Projects
From FEMA remapping to updating the infrastructure of the nation’s levee systems, CMI has helped many towns and municipalities reduce the risk for flooding while also reducing project costs. ShoreGuard sheet piling has been used to build flood walls at international airports and across miles of levees in Louisiana. Increase levee freeboard by installing sheet piling with the desired amount of stick-up or exposed sheet pile wall. For projects with extreme strength requirements consider UltraComposite FRP Sheet Piling or AlumiGuard Aluminum sheet piling. CMI is here to support you in your flood wall design with the project examples below.

From municipalities to corporations, synthetic sheet pile is a cost effective solution that reduces flood risk and insurance premiums.
Several of the nation’s largest refineries feature CMI flood protection.
Proven and Sustainable
In construction projects, it is difficult to find the most eco friendly option and a solution that will work. CMI offers both.
Louisiana Flood Project
Hurricane protection walls, like the ShoreGuard wall seen here, line levees in many states.
Sheet Pile Flood Protection
The flood protection case studies feature past projects with ShoreGuard, UltraComposite and AlumiGuard sheet piling.
Several levees in Louisiana have been upgraded or repaired with ShoreGuard sheet piling.
Flood Wall Installation
Traditional construction equipment can be used to drive synthetic sheet piling for flood applications.
Construction of Flood Protection
In certain projects, the PileClaw installation equipment eases the construction of sheet pile flood walls.
Vinyl Flood Protection
ShoreGuard vinyl sheet pile profiles can be used in cantilevered flood wall projects.
Flood protection can also be sustainable. Eco friendly sheet piling containing recycled materials is a proven material.
Aluminum Flood Walls
It is little known that aluminum sheet piling is an alternative to steel sheet piling in flood wall applications.
Airport Flood Wall
San Fransisco Airport, one of the worlds largest, features a ShoreGuard flood wall.
