GWR Steel Soldiers

“GWR” Steel Soldier System

 The GWR steel soldier system is a unique structural steel section that has been designed to take exceptional loads and can be used as either a support beam or a vertical column in heavy duty applications.  Each steel soldier is manufactured in the UK using high yield steel to provide maximum load capacity and each soldier can hold up to 100kN when used individually in a propping application.
