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.
