Acrow Prop Components
Acrow Prop Head and Base Plate
150mm x 150mm steel plates with drilled holes for securing to timber beams or facilitating the use of accessories.
Acrow Prop Inner-Tube
48.3mm OD tube with holes at 152.5mm centres. Tube diameter enables standard scaffold tube and couplers to be used for bracing purposes.
Acrow Prop Outer-Tube
60.3mm OD tube which accommodates the thread section and slot for fine height adjustment. Reduction couplers enable standard scaffold tube to be connected to the ACROW PROP outer-tube for bracing purposes.
The thread on the outer-tube provides fine adjustment within the props given range. The rolled thread retains the wall thickness of the tube and thereby maintains maximum strength.
Acrow Prop Nut
The self-cleaning ACROW PROP nut has a hole at one end for easy turning when the prop handle is close to walls. An extra nut can be added to convert the prop to a push-pull strut.
