Groundforce launches largest proprietary strut

mp750 strut 003

Groundforce Shoreco has set a new UK record with the launch of the 750t capacity MP750 proprietary strut, which is the largest struct on the market.

According to Groundforce, the new product will further benefit contractors working on projects that require heavy-duty ground propping.

The strut connects directly to the Groundforce 1,220mm diameter Super Tube extensions. The integral hydraulic ram combined with the twin mechanical screw jacks provides simple installation and fail-safe security.

With a high resistance to buckling spans of up to 50m are possible without additional restraint.

The MP750 can be used with the Senceive load and data monitoring system, which Groundforce has said makes it ideal for observational methodology.

The strut also employs Groundforce’s latest hydraulic nut technology. Acting directly behind the locking screws, the hydraulic nuts offer the ability to both pre-load the MP750 strut to a high level on installation as well as providing a safe and controlled means of releasing the strut under residual load. Without this technology, Groundforce has said that traditional mechanical systems can be problematic to remove under load.
