Hydraulic struts comprise of a series of extensions with a hydraulic unit at one end. The main advantages of the system is the speed of installation and removal compared with traditional fabricated systems. It is also possible to pre-stress the struts to the limit of deflection during the installation stages.
The MP60 mechanical strutting system uses a coarse screw thread at one end plus a combination of tubular extensions to configure medium duty props in the range 1.6m to 16.0m.
All hydraulic struts have a double acting hydraulic ram with an integral lock-off valve for simple, safe installation and removal.
The MP250 is a modular format high load capacity hydraulic strut combining the compressive strength of steel tube with the convenience of hydraulic actuation.
The MP750 is the pre-eminent prop in the Groundforce’s fleet of high strength modular struts.
The MP30 mechanical strutting system uses short stroke, push/pull type screw units in conjunction with standard MKII solider components.
