Aluminium Propping and Shoring System

Standard aluminium shoring systems have been developed to meet today's requirements for the construction industry, which allow speed, safety and economic demands to be achieved.

The shoring system has a maximum capacity from 100 to 120 kNs per leg section, the simple arrangement of the integral bracing frames allow only three main components for design (inner or outer leg and ledger frame).

The aluminium super prop (products such as Alshor, GASS and SGS) is commonly used for shoring and back propping of:

  • Industrial structures - tower structures with heavily loaded slabs.
  • Temporary support of structures during construction.
  • Residential and commercial concrete frame buildings.

Advantages of aluminium shoring.

  • Large volumes of false-work can be easily assembled because all the components are relatively light and can be quickly erected or dismantled manually by men.
  • Quick fastening and simple location of ledger frames,
  • Good strength to weight ratio.
  • Ledger frames can be located at any vertical position along the leg.
  • Connection detailing; which makes the system very adaptable and easy to assemble.

In essence, this unique lightweight shoring equipment requires a minimal number of component to provide a rigid temporary support system. This makes it quick and easy to erect as proven on many different types of construction projects. The light weight aluminium beams can be used to create a wide variety of beam configurations for, soffit support, formwork and falsework applications.
