Waling Channel

Waling Channel

Waling channel

The Waling Assembly transmits forces from the sheet piling to the anchorage whilst simultaneously aligning and stiffening the wall. ESC offers standard  hot rolled channel sections presented, but can also provide full options such as splicing plates and bolt holes. Alternatives that ESC can accommodate to are cold formed channels, or double wide flange beams or as the client requires.

High Modulus Connections

High Modulus Connections

ESC can design and fabricate a wide variety of Tie Rod connections for both King Pipe & H Piles that are easy to handle and install. Parameters required in the design of the connection are: preferred connection type, King Pile sizing and Tie Rod Bar sizing and strength. Presented are some typical designs but ESC can offer a full suite of options depending on the application and project requirements.
