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.
Using standard 610mm diameter extensions the MP250 can maintain its full capacity of 250 tonnes using its standard extensions up to a maximum span of 16.0m.
Integral hydraulic nuts acting directly behind the locking screws offer the ability to both pre-load the MP750 strut to a high level on installation.
Groundforce have partnered with the world leaders in wireless data monitoring Senceive. This system simplifies real time measurement of static loads and monitors potential movements.
The MP375 is a modular format heavy-duty hydraulically activated strut consisting of a hydraulic ram unit with a 1300mm stroke for fine length adjustment.
