PERI Releases PD 5 Shoring System
“10K Shoring” has been a generic term in the US concrete industry for decades for simple frame towers, used for tall shoring applications. The 10K stands for 10,000 lbs. capacity. And while formwork manufacturers have since come up with many other sophisticated, time and labor saving shoring options, 10K continues to have its place in any contractors shoring portfolio.
With PD-5, PERI is now bringing the smart features of some of the higher-tier products to traditional 10K shoring frames. This includes the innovative PERI-UP gravity lock to diagonal brace connections as well as new double pins for vertical frame connections, resulting in less parts and pieces needed for assembly and less parts to lose than with conventional systems.
The square profiles of the horizontal bars on the PD-5 frames ensure compatibility with PERI’s standard scaffolding parts, such as decks, for safer access during erection and dismantling of the system and ledger-to-ledger connections, for bracing several towers together or creating a safe guardrail solution within the shoring towers. Of course, towers can also be braced using standard pipe bracing or timber with scaffold adapters.
The system is flexible in height and width to accommodate all building geometries and lightweight, with no piece heavier than 48 lbs.
The height of the PD 5 Shoring System offers sophistication to traditional 10k shoring while still maintaining the general principles and installation methods used across all frame shoring systems.
Its carefully considered details, small number of individual components, and low weight ensure optimal site performance. The horizontal members on the system frame and grid sizing offer compatibility with the PERI UP modular construction kit, allowing you to integrate decking or ledgers for added safety during erection, placing, and disassembly.
What’s more, it is even possible to achieve a load-bearing capacity of up to 10,000lbs per leg even at a height of 32’-0” and a total spindle extension of 24”. This means fewer shoring towers are required, allowing you to save material on your jobsite.
Assembly and dismantling work can take place either vertically or horizontally, and you can even transport the system safely by crane or on a trolley with winch unit. Maximum flexibility and a whole host of application possibilities thanks to quick and continuous height and width adjustment
thanks to clever details and only a small number of individual parts
Simple and safe handling
on account of the low component weight and sophisticated frame design
Cost-effective and simple
The PD 5 Shoring System is suitable for slab formwork and beams across all Segments
- Slab formwork with MULTIFLEX
- Slab formwork with MULTIFLEX in combination with beams
Various additional applications, such as those in the transport and industrial construction industries, can also be accommodated to a limited extent.
