Common Uses for Acrow Props


Generally, Acrow props are used for scaffolding or building support to aid in the completion of the following tasks or projects:


Wall removal or interior wall renovation


Adding a window, doorway, or archway to a wall


Installing reinforced beams and concrete sections


Bracing formwork for stairs, columns, and walls



Acrow props come in five main sizes, zero, one, two, three, and four, with the lower numbers indicating a stronger weight-bearing capacity.


Generally, selecting the minimum size needed to safely perform a job is sufficient, but opting for larger props ensures that you won’t need to upgrade later on when you encounter a project with heavier load-bearing requirements. In essence, the sizes are backward compatible, so if you had a Size 1 Acrow prop, it could handle most tasks that a size 2, 3, or 4 could handle.


The base of an Acrow prop is highly compatible with other support types like timber needles, forkheads, strong boy brackets, and bracing couplers. Acrow props also adjust telescopically, making them ideal for use on walls and structures of varying heights.


Plus, they’re lightweight and easy to transport, especially when you consider how much weight they can support. It’s interesting to see a prop that can support part of a large building being easily stowed and transported with minimal space usage.
