North Shore Scaffolding is one of the largest suppliers in New Zealand of the Layher Allround Heavy Duty Propping, designed to take extremely high loads. These props allow for easy manual installation (no machinery required) and depending on the height and design, are able to support loads in excess of 200kN individually. In addition, they can be arranged into towers to take loads in excess of 600kN.
North Shore Scaffolding has used these props as temporary supports beneath commercial buildings when the structural supports (e.g. columns or beams) are being removed. We have also used these props in a horizontal position as waler support struts on civil excavation projects. The relatively small diameter of the props combined with the ease of installation makes using these props a more efficient method than typically welded steel cylindrical struts.
