Formwork and Shoring for Concrete Construction

20K Frame Shoring System MEGAFRAME

The most universaly used type of frame shoring system

MEGAFRAME is a 10,000 pound per leg (20,000 pound per frame) galvanized steel frame handset shoring system designed to work most efficiently on a great variety of construction projects. There are just a few components in this system which makes it easy to identify parts and increase efficiency.

Shoring frames are connected to each other via cross braces which space the frames at set distances. The coupling pins are used to stack frames together so that nearly any height can be achieved.

Applications:

  • High-shoring heights such as in building lobbies, mechanical floors, and water storage tanks
  • Multiple shoring heights where there are drop beams and column capitals
  • Irregular-shaped areas where grid shoring systems would not be practical

  • Jet Locks to speed assembly. Allows for easy connection and removal of cross braces. Only one hand is needed to attach and secure brace.
  • Braces are color-coded for easy identification.
  • 10,000-pound capacity per frame leg (3 tiers high with total screw leg extension of 24-inches top and bottom using a 2.5 to 1 safety factor.)
  • Two Tie-off plates are located on each frame to promote safety.
  • Fewer components to improve productivity.
  • Galvanized frames and components.
  • Screw legs have 20 inches of adjustment.

  • Productivity
    • The most universally used type of shoring system – well known by the construction community
    • 4’, 5’ &  6’ high frames accommodate most all shoring heights
  • Easy to use
    • Fewer components simplifying erection/assembly procedure
    • Three sizes of braces that separate the frames in four, six and eight feet lengths to make shoring towers
  • Safety
    • Tube and clamp components available for lacing and bracing when additional stability is required. The shoring towers must be braced for stability at a height of more than or equal to four times the base dimension
