SEL Slimshore soldier units can be used to enable temporary support of structural walls using conventional Propping & Needling techniques.
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.
