Why Brace A Structure When Propping?

IMG 0770 e1579268514862

The combined working load of an eccentrically loaded Acrow prop and tongued prop attachment varies from 340Kg down to 0Kg of which will depend on the factors below;

A, the brand, size, condition and age of the Acrow prop.

B, the height an Acrow props inner tube is extended and amount of 14mm pin-hole perforations are showing above the outer tube.

C, the measurement of the eccentric load from the central-axis of the Acrow prop to the centreline of the propped wall.

D, how plumb and how tight the Acrow prop is installed beneath the wall.

When the working load of both parts vary considerably, the weight of the structure can increase to extremes and the lateral strength of the structure is also unknown, it becomes quite obvious that collapse is more than a possibility when propping with eccentrically loaded bendable tongues upon a misused Acrow prop. There is a critical difference between using sound engineering principles and using a product with a variable working load that does not address the laws of physics.

 Top quality product.

“After taking the time to read and understand what the Brick Brace has to offer, I can now appreciate the impact this system can have on improving the safety of structural alterations.
After all structural alterations are the only general construction based procedures where NO training or advice is offered to any tradesman”.

“For me, Brick Brace is not just a product; it has provided an understanding of the task, with clear guidance on the limitations of all the equipment.
I also received very helpful advice and instructions from the guys at Brick Brace regarding my own project.
I challenge you all to find another company so invested in your own safety when it comes to structural alterations”.

BRILLIANT! Saved a lot of time and the beam went in with very little effort and no lifting gear due to our scaffold platform. I would highly recommend this system and we will be using it for all brick opening works from now on.

Every task of altering masonry is different and requires planning upon its own merit. Email us the detailed drawings of your next project and the method you would use to; and we will provide you with a safer option and with a superior finish.

The Scape-Goat Builder

Understand British Legislation and the consequences of assumed calculations.

An architect has the artistic freedom to design & draw any new opening size they wish upon an existing property into a rear or side extension with a few lines and a rubber and with no care of how it is done in real life.

For over thirty-five years structural engineers have provided the method of  out-of-date tongued prop attachments which may save time by cutting corners but also compromises the safety of the builder, work colleagues & occupiers/clients as the method doesn’t allow the correct fitting/work/scaffolding access without dangerously overloading the structure above, especially when cavity sizes have increased and steels sizes enlarged.

Upon this assumed, generic and out of date calculation, the builder purchase/hire tongued prop attachments of which are supplied with zero written guidance and are sold by a vast majority of retailers with limited masonry alterations knowledge, and when the obvious accidents of overloading re-occur, only the builder is at fault and fined or worst-case scenario; imprisoned for corporate manslaughter where collapse causes a fatality.
