These options offer axial compression working load limits which range from 7kN to 42.5 kN (1 kN >> 102 kg). With their adjustable heights, these versatile units are suited to most support tasks, including:

  • Falsework support for beams and reinforced concrete;
  • Raking shores for bracing formwork to walls, columns and stairs;
  • Temporary support for repairs, lintel support and canopies.

Safe, strong construction

Acrow props are manufactured from high yield steel and are fully compliant with BS4074 safety standards.

The three part construction of each prop allows for significant adjustment within each size option and includes:

  • Inner tube (with welded top plate)
  • Outer tube (with welded base plate)
  • Nut and handle
  • Chainless prop pin

The Acrow’s outer tube features an innovative rolled thread which maintains maximum strength because it retains the full tube wall thickness.

Versatile and portable

Light weight portability is facilitated by the innovative tube design. Only one person is needed to erect Acrow props, making them an economic option, as well as one of the safest, most robust and versatile construction support products.

Cost effective durability

The powder-coated finish on each Acrow prop gives tough protection against damage and corrosion, making the purchase of these props extremely cost effective. At SafeSite Facilities, Acrow props can be purchased or hired and delivered anywhere in the UK, allowing safe support nationwide.
