Acrow Hire?

blog post
Taking down load-bearing walls is always a tricky business. There is always a lot at stake when you are shoring up ceilings, floors and temporary beams.
Years ago, builders relied on time-consuming wooden pole scaffolding that had to sawn to fit each individual job. Anyone who does that nowadays is not only making unnecessary work for himself, but needlessly taking risks.
The answer these days is the enormously popular Acrow prop, a household name in the construction industry. If you need a super-strong support system that won’t let you down, Acrow props give you safety, security and ultimate peace of mind.
The adjustable Acrow steel props conveniently come in four different sizes and are specially designed to support a wide range of floors and temporary beams, allowing you to get on with jobs of this kind with complete confidence.
Acrows are made from an outer tube of 60.3mm diameter and an inner one of 4.83mm diameter, with a friction-welded threaded portion to the outer tube, producing an even lighter prop that is just as strong.
All Acrow props meet current safety regulations and are tested to industry standards. They can be used with additional attachments, such as Strongboys.
Acrows are the brainchild of the Swiss-born inventor William de Vigier, who thought up the adjustable steel prop in the 1930s. In 1935 he used his last £50 to set up a small workshop making steel props in London’s East End.
Acrows revolutionised the building trade. Workers no longer had to rely on time-consuming wooden props that had to sawn to fit each job. At first builders didn’t quite trust the new adjustable steel props. But those who did try them found they more than passed the test. Word soon got around, and within just four years more than 40,000 Acrow props were in use daily on construction sites across the UK.
They are perfect for taking the strain, easy to use, and totally reliable. They are simple to install and can be used on supporting walls, ceilings, floors and temporary beams.
There is no need to take risks with supporting walls and floors. It doesn’t make any kind of sense. Why do it the hard way and leave it to chance when you can easily hire Acrow props and take the weight off your shoulders?
