Acrow Props


Acrow Props




Our adjustable steel acrow props have been created to temporarily support a range of building and construction projects and repair work. They can be also known in the trade as shoreprops, steel props, post shores or just plain old acrows.

Shoreprops are powder coated green which helps protect them from rusting, corrosion and wear and tear and gives them more durability. Adjustable acrows are made up of an inner and outer tube, top and base plates that have been welded on, a nut with a handle to adjust the height and a screw thread/prop pin which secures the prop in the height position once adjusted. We have various size acrows available with varying adjustable heights. Please see our specification section for exact sizes and heights.

All of the acrows we sell comply with British standards BS4074: 1982 and BS5507-3:1982. Our props provide a safe, secure and sturdy way to support ceilings, horizontal beams and floors. Acrows are a very handy tool that is essential for trade workers.
