Props are the fast and easy way to support formwork. Props eliminate the costly labour and time consumed in cutting timber to length, wedging and nailing.
There are no loose parts to be mislaid or lost and the props are compact for storage and transport.
Five sizes are available
|Size No.||Closed Height||Extended Height||Maximum Safe Working Loads (kN) Closed||Maximum Safe Working Loads (kN) Extended||Maximum Safe Working Loads (kN) Extended & Laced||Weight (kg)|
It should be noted that the maximum recommended working load for any prop is 29.00 kN regardless of potential supporting capacity above this load. This condition is introduced to avoid excessive force being required to operate the prop nut of very highly loaded props.
Lack of attention to the erection of props resulting in them not being vertical or eccentrically loaded or a combination of both conditions will result in a reduction of carrying capacity.
Wear safety footwear for toe protection.
Gauntlets, PVC, cotton or rigger gloves for hand protection.
Protect against falling objects. Compulsory on site. Bump caps protect from overhead obstacles.
SA Pine Wooden Beams are ideal for concrete formwork support where short lengths are required.
Quickstage is South Africa’s most common modular scaffolding system and has been around for almost 40 years.
For rapidly and rigidly clamping of temporary concrete column formwork the use of column clamps is standard practice throughout the building industry.
