Structural Propping

When planning a construction or infrastructure project, you’re almost guaranteed to need temporary propping. Whether you need to support heavy loads at height or require lightweight props for awkward areas, we can design, install and certify a compliant and cost-effective solution. 

Risk-reducing turnkey solutions 
Why risk delays, cost overruns and site safety when you can engage our in-house engineers, designers, installers and project managers to provide a complete propping solution? We can also provide certifications, independent of the design and installation, under the same purchase order. For added confidence, wireless telemetry allows real-time monitoring of loads via mobile or laptop.

Money-saving modular systems
Our proprietary Universal Prop System is a heavy-duty modular solution that is pre-certified and easily bolted together on site, saving you time and money. Coming soon, Quadshore 150 is a world-first structural support system developed in conjunction with Monash University that offers one and a half times the capacity at half the weight.

Our structural propping range includes:

  - Universal Prop System

  - Quadshore 150 (coming soon)

  - Trishore props

  - Titan super props

  - Mini tri props

- Mono props

  - Acrow props

  - Tilt props

Synchronous Hydraulic Jacking

Need to jack large and heavy structures with pinpoint precision? Our synchronous hydraulic jacking systems control and synchronise lifting or lowering at multiple points to maintain structural integrity and achieve an optimal lift speed, resulting in minimal downtime and maximum safety. 

Full project support 
Heavy lifts are challenging, so our engineering team can support you with system design, certified jacking procedures, installation and operation. For ease of project delivery and ultimately peace of mind, our experienced operators are available on site anytime, anywhere in Australia to manage your lift.

Ease of operation
Backed by user-friendly software with out-of-tolerance alarms and data recording capabilities, a single operator can control an entire lifting operation without the need for manual monitoring. Instead of using independently operated pumps to lift your heavy load, talk to our team about a synchronous solution.

Sync system features:

  - 12-port system

  - PLC controlled

  - Recordable data log of all movements

  - Tolerances +/- 0.1mm

  - Remote operation

  - Tolerance alarms

Hydraulic Shoring

If you’re planning large or deep excavation works in urban areas, we recommend a hydraulic bracing system combined with hydraulic cross-struts. Our modular systems offer faster installation and the flexibility to work around existing utilities and obstructions.

Versatile and cost-effective
With capacities up to 250 tonne and clear spans up to 40 metres, our hydraulic bracing and strutting solutions can be used in conjunction with trench sheeting, sheet piles or structural props for ultimate versatility. Remote wireless monitoring provides 24/7 visibility and peace of mind.
Standard Shorting

Hassle-free temporary works
Take the stress out of large-scale excavations by engaging one supplier to manage your complex shoring needs from start to finish. Our in-house engineering team can design, install, project manage and certify a safe shoring solution based on ground and site conditions.
Standard Shoring 2
Our hydraulic shoring range includes:

  - Power Brace – lightweight hydraulic bracing system

  - Mega Brace – heavy-duty hydraulic bracing system

  - MP50 – medium-duty hydraulic strut

  - MP150 – heavy-duty hydraulic strut

  - MP250 – super heavy-duty hydraulic strut
