Shoring Frame Scaffolding

What is the shoring frame? What are shoring frames used for? What elements of the shoring frame system? What types of shoring frames? What is the load capacity of these types of shoring frames? How to install shoring frames? As a manufacturer of shoring frames export to global 59 countries. We give you all details here to help you choose and understand the shoring frame and the system.

The shoring frame is one of the frame scaffold systems especially used for shoring concrete to support concrete flooring, ceiling, excavation, etc in construction and repair.

The shoring frame system includes parts and components of, frames, cross braces, coupling pins, adjustable base jack, U head, and Fork Heads and Jacks. With these components, the shoring frames are able to support the shoring beams and form a temporary and permanent structure in concreting.

Shoring Frame Components and Parts

Frames of the shoring frame system are with two hi-load legs, horizontal or brace tubes connect with the two legs, and some scaffold lock pins welded on the vertical and horizontal tubes, used to connect with cross braces(X braces) and forming frame sets.

Cross braces of the shoring frame system are always in pairs and cross each other. In the middle of the cross brace, a bolt and nut washer fixed the brace in a crossing shape.  At the ends of the cross braces, there are holes. The holes are used to connect with lock pins on frame legs and horizontals.

Adjustable base jacks are placed at the bottom of the shoring frame to level the feet and adjust the frame at a required height. Adjustable base jacks are always with jack nut handles convenient for height adjusting at the concrete construction site.

The top head of the shoring frame system includes the top U head, top J head, or top fork head. They can be fixed type with a simple spigot or adjustable with a screw stem. jack nut needs to match up with the frame tube diameter.

Coupling pins of the shoring frame are inserted inside of the shoring frame vertical tubes for stack and reach the required height in construction support.

Shoring frame scaffold elements and parts are made of steel material. For rusty protection, they are finished on the surface of paint, powder coated, E-galvanized or hot dip galvanized.

Shoring Frame Safety Load, Safety Factor, and Test Bearing Weight

The shoring frames and systems are designed to support heavy loads. The safety load needs to be more than 20K LBS (10K LBS per leg).

Consider safety factors of 2:1, 2.5:1, and 3:1 according to international standards(CSA, ASTM scaffold standards).

You can choose the right types of shoring frames from the actual test result of 3 tiers.

Shoring Framing and Installation

Shoring framing is the installation of the shoring frame system elements to form the propping and supporting frame for concrete or structure. Compare to scaffold tube &system, and other modular scaffolding systems like ringlock, cuplock, kwikstage, quick lock scaffold, etc, Shoring framing is much easier with fewer steps and fewer elements. In addition, shoring frames are with two fixed legs in parallel, so no need to place a single post piece by piece.

Shoring Framing Installation Steps

  1. Put base jacks in place
  2. Insert shoring frames on adjustable base jack
  3. Place another jack and frames on the ground
  4. Connect two frames by cross braces
  5. Adjust the height of 1st tier of the shoring frame sets
  6. Put the coupling pins inside the shoring frames
  7. Install 2nd tiers of shoring frames
  8. Install the next 3,4… ties of shoring frames to a required height
  9. Insert the top Head Inside of the shoring frame legs
  10. Place shoring beams on the top heads
