Walings transfer the forces from the sheet pile wall to the anchors and also stiffen and align the wall. Generally, walings are provided in the form of tension members on the inside of the main wall, but on anchor walls they are generally provided in the form of compression members at the rear of the wall.
Normally, a waling is in the form of two latticed steel channels, positioned with their webs perpendicular to the sheet pile wall.
The necessary spacing between the two channel sections is achieved with further channel sections or web plates (so-called latticing) welded to the channels at intervals depending on the pile width. Unless DIN EN 10025 compliant steels are used here, ASF-Anker can deliver walings with CE Marking.
The waling connection is usually done by bolted U-Profiles.
You can find detailed technical tables to our Waling splice joints here.
To fix the taping on the sheet piling ASF-Anker delivers the necessary connection elements:
Waling bolt with head and nut
Waling stud with two nuts
