Bracing Walls

Description

Wall bracing is used to support existing walls and structures during demolition or reconstruction, and as a propping method in tilt-up construction.  

 

Usage

Wall bracing is used in a number of circumstances on construction sites but typically involves supporting a wall using an angled prop fixed to the ground, to support the load while other activities are undertaken.

Raking shoring is one of the more common types of wall bracing methods, used to support existing structures that are unstable, where a builder wants to retain an existing wall or façade, or in conjunction with back propping of a new slab to provide additional support. Tilt-up construction techniques also make use of wall braces (or tilt props) to hold pre-cast concrete panels in place, a process that enables efficient construction of large buildings.

Wall bracing can be a delicate process and should be carried out by qualified engineers to ensure the correct amount and method of bracing is applied. Typical products used for bracing walls include Shore 100 and tilt props
