Designed to take loads in 2 directions, Push Pull Props are commonly deployed on construction sites to enable formwork plumbing and to secure against wind loadings.

Push Pull Props can be used with the SEL Slimshore Soldiers by adding a ‘T’ Connector to the top plate and fixing to the soldier as shown in the Light Duty detail For general light usage of push pull props and standard props, please see the table below. The information is based on industry standard adjustable steel props as defined by BS 4074.

In heavy duty applications, a Push Pull prop can be made up using Slimshore soldier units and accessories, as shown in the Heavy Duty detail. For most typical applications, the Slimshore push pull capacity will be limited to 65kN.
