Tilt Propping


Tilt propping is the use of angled props to support walls, typically pre-cast concrete panels used in tilt-up construction methods for commercial and industrial buildings. Tilt propping enables entire structures to be erected quickly and safely. 



Tilt propping makes use of pre-cast, reinforced concrete panels, and tilt props (also known as push pull props) to support them. Tilt props are fixed to the panel and, once the panel has been lifted into place, they are fixed to the ground, propping the panel and transferring load to the ground. Typically two or more props are used for each panel, although this can increase depending on the size and weight of the concrete.

Using the tilt propping method, large buildings can easily be erected efficiently by a small team, with a crane handling heavy lifting and crew fixing tilt props in place to bear the lead of the walls. Certification of load amounts should always be carried out by a qualified engineer. Typical products used in tilt propping include aluminium tilt props and t-locks
