The truss system offers substantial savings in dismantling and erection time compared with handset shoring systems. The system gives outstanding performance required for today’s high speed construction methods over multiple floors.
The Truss system was developed for the specific purpose of reducing construction times, reducing labour costs and improving productivity on buildings that have repetitive floor plans.
The Truss system enables large flying forms to be constructed. These forms are assembled only once and re-used floor-by-floor, avoiding the need for costly dismantling and re-assembly of the falsework as each floor is constructed.
The Truss system is supported and labelled by truss jacks spaced at 6.05m (10’10”) centres. These remain attached to the bottom chord (A) of the Truss and are clipped up out of the way (B) during the flying operations. Specially designed glides enable the entire flying form to be easily rolled out of the bay by only two men.
