10K Steel Shoring Frames
HI-LITE’s Steel Shoring Frames are made of high-quality steel tubes and accessories, which are galvanized or painted. Using HI-LITE’s components and accessories, steel frames can be adapted to any geometry, including steps and slopes.
HI-LITE’s 10K Steel Shoring System is built to safely support loads of up to 4,535 kg (10,000 lb) with a Factor of Safety of 2.5:1 per CSA and SSFI.
Frame capacities vary depending the number of tiers in height, the lengths of extensions, the amount of bracing needed, whether inter-bracing has been used, and if there are any lateral or wind loads imposed.
The normal testing configuration of the 10K Steel Shoring System exceeds the requirements of both the CSA and the SSFI of the USA A tower, 3 tiers high, consisting of 6ft high frames, with Screw Jacks extended 12”, top and bottom, is loaded to failure. The load rating of the frames is then determined by dividing the failure load by the required Safety Factor.
