Please note: Due to the material of this product and exterior storage, there may be some surface-level rust on our Acrow Props; however, they are still supplied in a fully usable condition.
An Acrow Prop is also known as an Adjustable Steel Prop, Jack Post, Acrow Jack, Shore Prop and Post Shore. They all refer to a method of vertically supporting a load-bearing wall while a new door or window is cut in or for when repair work is carried out. They ensure that structures do not collapse onto anyone working beneath them.
This is a standard piece of equipment that is used extensively throughout the construction industry and is very versatile. Acrow Props are manufactured from galvanised steel so are very tough and hard-wearing, they are reusable so are a very cost-effective equipment investment.
These sturdy supports are made from two steel tubes that together have a telescopic action so can extend in length. The Size 3 has an extended length of 3950mm. Other sizes are also available as is a Propmate which works alongside the Acrow Prop.
The Acrow Prop consists of a threaded inner tube with a square top plate, a threaded outer tube with square base plate, and a collar, handle and pin. The thread allows quick length adjustment and the pin stops the tubes collapsing inside each other when supporting a load. The threaded collar has a winding handle to tighten into final position.
