Acrow Props

Add to Bulk Quote

Adjustable steel props, also more commonly known as Acrow Props are designed as a temporary support for walls and ceilings. SCP are the ONLY UK company that supply a FULLY TESTED PRODUCT that is independently tested in all positions. Many other companies test just one prop in one position and claim con-formance, this is outside of the test criteria and makes the claim of compliance invalid. PROPS are load bearing items, failure under load can result in serious injury or death.

SCP GUARANTEE FULL CONFORMANCE AND CERTIFICATION GUARANTEES PERFORMANCE SCP Props are maunfactured from 60.3 o/d outer tube and 48.3 o/d high grade inner tube. Adjustable Steel Props are available in 5 sizes, supplied from stock.

All SCP Props are manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 quality system accreditation.

Our Acrow Props are made from high-grade steel, the outer tube diameter is 60.3mm and uses roll threading technology for increased strength. The inner tube diameter is 48.3mm.

The threaded portion is friction welded to the outer tube, which reduces the weight but not the strength of our Prop.

A single Acrow Prop consists of an inner and outer tube, welded base plates top and bottom, collar with a handle to adjust the height and then finished off with a pin to secure at the perfect height.

All of our Props are manufactured conforming to BS4074 and tested to BS5507, following ISO 9001:2015 quality system accreditation. This means they have been fully tested to meet all Health and Safety requirements, unlike many cheaper untested copies.

BS4074 Specifies materials and dimensions for the parts of a prop and strut, and two alternative means for producing a suitable design, either by adherence to specified geometrical limits or by reference to minimum performance criteria.

BS5507 Specifies requirements for determining the compressive strength of props.

What is an Acrow Prop used for?

Acrow Props are used within the building trade to create temporary supports.

  • Ceiling Supports
  • Supporting Beams, RSJ's & Lintels
  • Shoring up structures
  • Supporting load-bearing walls

How can we be sure that your props are tested?

We have full confidence in our Acrow Props and although they have been tested to the relevant BS standards, our suppliers have gone the extra mile and have had a structural engineer verify that the props are 100% compliant with British Standards.

What is the weight of an Acrow Prop?

Acrow props will weigh more as you increase the size, this is due to the additional material required to meet the length requirements. You can find the individual weights for our Acrow Props in the technical information above.
