# Technical References

This section has been provided to show you some possible applications for some of HI-LITE’s more popular shoring systems, which are used by the high-rise construction industry worldwide. Some handy, how-to examples have also been included in this section to give you some practical load-bearing, tower load, and leg height calculations, plus other examples to show you how to make the best use of our products.

Over 30 years of design experience and testing have gone into the development of these products, including our 12 Kip Aluminum Shoring system, which is now used in many countries across the globe.
