Formwork Soldiers

steel formwork soldiers in use
Guaranteeing a dependably superior concrete finish.

Our steel soldier system is designed in-hand with steel formwork systems, soldier fittings and accessories that allow a broad range of functionality.

High durability ensures that the system has a long life-span, providing an extremely cost-efficient solution to formwork shoring and temporary support.

The modular design ensures beam assembly to virtually any custom length; providing almost unlimited restriction in the height and shape of wall formwork, and meeting the demands of almost any construction project.

This system is designed to be compatible with steel formwork systems, as well as timber or aluminium beams, in the construction of straight, curved, or even conical walls or slabs. Using prop jacks, soldiers can be attached to formwork systems, ground support and/or structural members to guarantee safe, reliable shoring.

Spanning Beams & Trusses

With an extremely high weight bearing capacity, coupled to a modular design that allows specific lengths to be assembled, the steel soldier system is aptly suited to providing high levels of support as spanning beams and trusses.

Cantilevered Support

Steel Beam Soldiers can also be used as cantilevered support for slabs over an edge. Contact us for more information.

Soldier beams are used in a wide range of industries, though most commonly for shoring support in construction. Also known as 'strongbacks', steel soldier girders reinforce formwork shuttering to ensure a strong and stable structure is maintained when concrete is poured.

Due to the simple, yet highly efficient design, the soldier beam has an extremely high strength to weight ratio, providing very high levels of support in shoring and propping applications.

Simple to use, high load bearing capacity, and strong, durable design makes steel soldiers the ideal choice for a range of purposes including: 

  • Horizontal and Vertical Formwork Shuttering Applications
  • Heavy Duty Push Pull Rods / Alignment Struts
  • Temporary Shoring and Support
  • Cantilevered Edge Support
