Shoring systems are temporary structures designed to support buildings or bridges during construction. Structural shoring includes heavy duty modular steel components to create legs and steel towers to support load bearing supports capable of sustaining 50,000 to 490,000 lbs per leg. Types of shoring include raking or inclined shores, needling, horizontal shores, and dead or vertical shores.
Structural shoring is a temporary system used for building construction, demolition, renovation or other heavy propping applications such as bridge repairs. Propping legs can be constructed to form towers that act as piers for bridges while being repaired. Shoring for propping or needling applications prevents structures’ walls from shifting, bulging or caving. Shoring supports an entire structure of a building by being installed on multiple floors within the building.
