MP60’s use 350mm diameter tubular sections as the main structural member. At shorter spans, the local capacity of the screw unit limits the axial load and at longer spans the potential for lateral buckling of the extension sections dictate overall axial capacity.

    The MP60’s can be configured to work within an operating range of 1.6m to 16.0m without the need for intermediate support and can withstand working axial loads up to 60tonnes at shorter spans.

    It can be used as an independent cross strut, knee brace or raking prop (using appropriate end plate adaptors), in combination with any Groundforce proprietary waling systems such as the Mega Brace or Maxi Brace alternatively with single/twin welded beams and non-standard applications such as propping plain walls, slabs, soldiers and temporary roof propping. It can be used in situations were a mechanical strut is preferred over a hydraulic strut for non pre-load applications.

MP60 Mechanical Struts: Typical Installation Methodology

Groundforce MP60 is a modular format medium-duty mechanically adjustable strut, combining the compressive strength of steel tube with the convenience of mechanical length adjustment. Watch our typical installation video.
