Building & Construction Propping

Description

Building propping can take a variety of forms and various propping and shoring methods can be used, helping to achieve a range of construction outcomes. 

 

Usage

Every construction is unique and the choice of building propping method will vary depending on the job’s requirements and site conditions. The general goal is to transfer loads from walls or ceilings to the ground, to support certain parts of a building while alterations, renovations or excavations take place. Back propping and wall raking can be used to reinforce a structure during repairs or construction and to underpin floors. Needle shoring can be used to support existing walls, floors and roofing while works are carried out to form openings or remove walls at lower levels. Typical products used for building propping include Shore 1000, trishores and needle beams
