Mega Brace

About Mega Brace

The MEGA Brace is a high load capacity modular hydraulic bracing system designed to support square, rectangular or multi-sided excavations ranging from 3.0m to 20.0m in plan.

 It comprises hydraulic unit for fine length adjustment connected to a series of modular fixed length extension pieces for course length adjustment, connected via a simple double pinned splice. The fixed length extensions can be connected together to form a continuous heavy-duty waling beam when used as part of an internally strutted frame. 

Benefits

  • Modular format allows for easy installation of large frame configurations with relatively light duty lifting equipment.
  • Pined joint and corner connections for quick assembly on site.
  • Ideal for long excavations, where large clear spans are required.
  • In built corner joint articulation enables the legs to be used for non-rectangular e.g. hexagonal excavations.
  • Double acting hydraulics with integral mechanical lock off valve for ease of installation and removal with zero fluid loss.
  • Full mechanical lock off system available on special order.

Typical Applications

  • Large Tanks - Interceptor, storage, fuel tank farms.
  • Cofferdams, basements, bridge abutments.
  • Reinforced Concrete Structures - Pumping Stations and Retaining walls.
