Common Uses of Acrow Props Time:2023-08-24

Generally, acrow props are used for scaffolding supporting or building concrete formwrok support aid in the completion of the following tasks or projects: 1) Wall removal, interior or exterior wall renovation; 2) Adding a window, doorway, or archway to a wall; 3) Installing reinforced beams and concrete sections; 4) Bracing formwork for stairs, columns, and walls.


Acrow props come in five main sizes, zero, one, two, three, and four, with the lower numbers indicating a stronger weight-bearing capacity.


Generally, selecting the minimum size needed to safely perform a job is sufficient, but opting for larger props ensures that you wont need to upgrade later on when you encounter a project with heavier load-bearing requirements. In essence, the sizes are backward compatible, so if you had a Size 1 Acrow prop, it could handle most tasks that a size 2, 3, or 4 could handle.


The base of an Acrow prop is highly compatible with other support types like timber needles, forkheads, strong main body brackets, and bracing diagonals. Acrow props also adjust telescopically, making them ideal for use on walls and structures of varying heights.


Plus, theyre lightweight and easy to transport, especially when you consider how much weight they can support. Its interesting to see a prop that can support part of a large building being easily stowed and transported with minimal space usage.
