Shoring Rental Division – Superior Scaffold
And for our final rental division – Shoring.
In simple terms, shoring is the act of propping up with shores. Shoring is a general term used in construction to describe the process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed.
Superior Scaffold has been providing general contractors and construction companies with innovative shoring solutions for more than 50 years.
Now, a little more clarificaton – from the SSFI (Scaffolding, Shoring, Forming Institute) Shoring is not scaffolding and scaffolding is not shoring. The difference is in the use.
The American National Standards Institute describes scaffolding as “a temporary elevated or suspended work unit and its supporting structure used for supporting worker(s) or materials, or both,” while the same agency describes shoring as “ The vertical supporting members in a formwork system.”
Now that makes sense.
Although scaffolding is not shoring and shoring is not scaffolding, remember that each system requires proper fall protection, access, and strength. If layout work or load calculations are required, Superior has an in-house engineering staff available for customer support. For further information, call Superior Scaffold at (215) 743-2200 and ask for Mike.
Either way – Superior offers a wide range of Shoring sizes and configurations that are available for any application. Our diverse shoring line allows users to complete the most complex jobs.
