About the “Italia” prop

“Italia” prop is a standard light steel shoring system: the most used in Italy but better known as Acrow prop.

Given its popularity and history, fruit of a typical Italian tradition, it is Italy’s benchmark prop abroad.

It is easy to spot due to its distinctive red colour.

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

Italia props are hot dip coated in red (with galvanising option upon request).
