Tilt Props
Purpose made steel props or braces that temporarily hold tilt panels until they are secured.

tilt slab braces

Tilt slab braces are not the same as standard steel formwork props. The crucial difference is that they have to hold the wall in place from one side only. That is they have to be firm in tension as well as in compression.

These props are adjustable by fairly large increments, (see the hole spacings in the props above) and then the fine adjustment is done with the large nut at the bottom.

The top of the prop is bolted to a threaded insert in the wall that is cast into wall when it is poured. The bottom of the prop is secured with a masonry bolt to the concrete floor.

For non glossary articles of a general and how to nature go to the formwork section on this site.
