Temporary Propping in Construction

Img 1855

Temporary propping is a common practice in construction that involves the use of temporary structures to provide temporary support during construction or renovation work. The primary purpose of temporary propping is to prevent the collapse of a structure during construction, which can be caused by unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters, heavy loads, or sudden changes in the environment.

Temporary propping systems may include timber or steel bracing, props, jacks, hydraulic systems, or other specialised equipment. The selection of an appropriate system is dependent on several factors, such as the type of structure, the weight of the loads, and the duration of the work.

Temporary propping can also be used to support structures that have suffered damage, allowing for effective repair and renovation. It is crucial to ensure that temporary propping is efficient, stable, and safe to provide a secure working environment for workers and the public.
