    Specialist props and propping

    Published on 28 February 2019, Thursday, 4:16 AM

    Jobs around construction sites often require a bit of support - literally.

    Props are used to keep heavy materials and objects in place while work is still being undertaken, and are vital for safe practice.

    Alloy super props, such as the smallest ten-tonne option with adjustable lengths, are ideal for a range of construction jobs that require load support.

    They are most often used for supporting framework for reinforced concrete floors and beams, so their alloy construction is best as this strengthens these props while reducing their weight. This makes them easy to transport and safe to use.

    Proppas have wedged heads to make entry into the mortar joint as easy as possible, and have a maximum usable height of 3,200 millimetres.

    Steel props come in a range of sizes for just about any propping job on buildings, formwork and retaining walls, and can also be used as long jacks. Each size is fully adjustable.

    Kennards Lift and Shift has all of these props, as well as an array of other lifting and shifting equipment for hire to help you get the job done.
