Double channel steel walers turn everyday panels into productive gangform systems

butt plate walers

Butt Plate Walers, bolted together end-to-end, are used to support this large wood beam gang.

Contractors own lots of different forming equipment, but they don’t always own enough walers… the one thing that can really maximize forming productivity!

Walers are used to align panels, carry taper tie loads and maximize the surface area of each gang. Depending on the type of panel and contractor preference, there are several waler alternatives.
