SEL’s Slimshore soldier units can be used to enable temporary support of structural walls using conventional Propping & Needling techniques, they are often used as basement equipment.

Depending on the loading criteria, the Slimshore Needle beams may be supported using Light or Heavy duty props. The Heavy Duty props are made up using slimshore soldier units which we can supply along with other necessary equipment including push pull props. 

Please contact SEL for further information and advice on any Propping or Needling Equipment you may require.

Formwork Soldiers can be connected end to end using a 4no. or 6no. M16x40 Bolted joint, depending on the required strength. The soldiers can be used as Prop units, Raking shores, Needle Beams and more.
