Aluminum props: use and new developments of shoring equipment in the construction sector.
Aluminum has been successfully used for several years in the construction sector: since the Empire State Building in New York, one of the first large buildings that saw the use of this material in its construction, aluminum has gained great success in the construction field. Almost 90 years have passed since the construction of the skyscraper, symbol of the Big Apple, but the role of aluminum has remained central still today in the sector and, due to new developments and the latest technologies, it will also be in the future.
This importance is due to the peculiarities of this material and in particular, to its sustainability, to the possibility of infinite recycling, to the low specific weight, to the high ductility and to the high resistance to corrosion. This material is increasingly used in the structures necessary for the construction phases: this because aluminum props are static support elements necessary in the construction of any structure, more resistant, safer and more efficient than the classic ones made of steel.
Ferro-Met, aware of the versatility, solidity and resistance of aluminum, realizes high-quality props with this material, offering its customers solutions suited to the most particular needs.
