Prop head wall supports
Strongboys brackets, or prop heads, fit the top of acrow props, and they are designed to support walls whilst fitting lintels, RSJs or beams. You hammer the blade of the strongboy into a raked mortar joint. Along with acrow props, they support the load's weight so that the masonry below can be removed. Strongboys weigh 6.5kg, with a support span of up to 900mm, and a maximum safe load of 340kg. The 'tongue' of the prop head must be inserted into the wall at least the width of one brick, and you must ensure that enough strongboys and props are used to distribute the weight and take the load safely. You must check the condition of all of the prop heads and props before you use them, and if you find a fault or suspect a fault, do not use them. Instead, seek a replacement. Only remove the props if you are sure that the wall no longer needs them as support. If you do not understand how to use them, then do not use them. We can also supply acrow props in a range of sizes.
You can book strongboy hire online or over the phone and then collect the strongboys from your local store at the start of the hire, or we can deliver them to you. You must wear all appropriate protective clothing whilst using strong boys and adjustable props, including steel toe-capped boots, gloves, a safety helmet and a dust mask.
