The strong boy is a simple and highly practical underpinning solution for any work involving repair or maintenance of masonry or during the installation of lintels or RSJs.
Strong boy props fit onto height adjustable acrow props, with the blade of the strong boy simply hammered into a raked mortar joint. This combination of propping methods is fast and easy to adjust and install onsite, meaning even a team of two can easily accomplish difficult masonry work and repairs quickly.
Shore Hire’s experienced team can provide custom advice on load bearing capacities so you can be assured of using the correct method of underpinning on your next job.
Shore Hire’s strong boys have been used in a range of construction projects including Burraneer.
A strong boy supports single or double brick walls from either the inside or outside and can support heavy loads.
This provides builders with flexibility as to how they approach a job and can remove the need for multiple props or the time-consuming process of installing needles.
Strong boys are compatible with acrow props to allow easy height adjustment.
