The Actech Early Propping Support provides a safe and cost effective way to prop panels in low strength concrete floors. The Early Propping Support system is becoming essential in the present day due to the increasing demand for quick concrete pouring as well as the erection of these concrete slabs and other elements.

Consequently, Actech’s Early Propping System, helps to significantly save time and labour costs and ensures that your job is on track.

Simply locate the correct propping position and secure the base to the formwork soffit. Cut M12 allthread to suit the finished height of the support.
