Slab & Deck Shoring Solutions
The EFCO DECK® single post shoring system is a good solution to handle slab construction where flying tables are not practical or, in some cases, not allowed. All components are made of high-strength galvanized steel and aluminum. This provides a lightweight and durable system that requires little or no clean up between uses. With trained crews and pre-planning, the EFCO DECK® system can be the best solution with the lowest labor costs for elevated poured-in-place concrete slabs.
Elevated Poured-in-Place Concrete
EFCO DECK® is a single-post handset shoring system for elevated poured-in-place concrete slabs for 6’-6” to 15’ floor-to-ceiling heights and the following post lengths:
- L1 Post Length: 6’-6” to 10’-0”
- L2 Post Length: 7’-6” to 12’-0
- L3 Post Length: 9’-0” to 15’-0”
Some of the benefits of EFCO DECK shoring system:
- Larger work aisles for better access
- 8’ spacing allows earlier removal of a larger percentage of your plywood
- Fewer parts to handle
- Less labor to assemble and strip
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO WORK WITH EFCO’S ENGINEERING TEAM?
Improper stripping and reshoring may cause sagging of partially cured concrete and development of possible cracks forming in later years. Inadequate size and spacing of restores may lead to a formwork collapse during construction, along with other damage. It is extremely important to work the layout of the formwork with engineers and contractors. EFCO’s skilled Engineering team delivers solutions for safe formwork support systems. This work includes project-specific form erection drawings.
WHAT IS THE IDEAL POST SPACING FOR SHORING?
EFCO DECK® is designed to match the worldwide standard imperial 4′ x 8′ (1220 mm x 2440 mm) dimensioned plywood; competitive metric systems do not. 6′ x 8′ (1830 mm x 2440 m) post spacing, 48 ft² (4.47 m²) per post.
