About the french prop

The french prop is a steel shoring system. It distinguishes itself from other light props for two main features: the tubes that compose it are thicker and the presence of a cast iron sleeve.

This is the most common shoring system in France and in other French-speaking countries.

It is available in a painted version (red dipping paint) or hot-dip galvanized version.

Being resistant and economic, it suits any use when it comes to propping.

The holes located in the inner pipe at a 100 mm interval, can reach extensions varying between 170 and 400 cm.

They are compatible with most accessories of other formworks and floors.

We - at GBM - manufacture 3 different models - classified according to maximum extension and capacity. Below are their technical features.
