UK’s largest proprietary hydraulic strut (MP500)
The prop consists of a hydraulic unit with 500mm adjustment, connected to tubular 1220mm Ø extensions. The hydraulic unit also incorporates a mechanical lock off system, meaning that the prop benefits from the speed of hydraulic installation coupled with the peace of mind of a failsafe backup. Axial loadings in excess of 5000kN can be accommodated over a 35m span, without the need for any intermediate support.
The benefits of this product include:
- Speed of Hydraulic Installation
- 5000kN+ Working Resistance
- Mechanical Lock Off System
- 35m Clear Span at Full Load
- Wireless Load Monitoring
- In built pre-camber
What Our Customers Say...
“Each 47m long MP500 prop was installed in less than half a day, which is far quicker than a traditional fabricated solution. The system does not require any mid- pan support and has the added benefit of incorporating a load monitoring system”
