Post Shore


  • Extended shore staff to approximately required height.
  • Insert pin in lower exposed hole in staff, set in adjacent stop of Speedset.
  • Adjust to final height by turning shore nut. Adjustment holes in the shore staffs are spaced 4” apart. Four steps in the Speedset are 1” apart, permitting “approximate” adjustment to within an easy two inches of the required height. Final adjustment requires only 4 or 5 turns of the shore nut.
  • To strip, back shore nut off of turn or two, lower pin to bottom step in Speedset and shore staff is free.

Standard Post Shore

Wide Working Range Min Max

0701-XX                                 6’2”                 11’1”

0702-XX                                 8’2”                 13’1”

073-XX                                   10’9”               15’7”


  • All steel construction means years of service
  • Covered adjustment threads reduce damage and maintenance.
  • No loose parts

Fast, Easy Bracing

  • Nailing plates available for base and staff
  • Bracing may be run in any direction, and any angle
  • Base bracing facilities erection and increases lateral stability.



Variable Spacing

  • Independent units can be spaced as required to accommodate available timber, and load requirements.


  • Easy to handle units lock together with attached shore pin for transportation and storage


  • Three staff sizes are interchangeable in a standard base to provide a full range of shoring height with minimum investment

Four Head Styles

  • -66 type, a 6 inch square plate head
  • -08 type, an 8 inch long J shape head, a full 4-inch inside
  • -14 type, a 14 inch long J shape head, a full 4-inch inside width
  • -48 type, a 4 x 8 plate head

Bracing Details

Braces of 2” x 4” lumber or heavier, are fastened to the post. Run the lumber horizontally between bases. At the end of each line of horizontal lumber braces, run a diagonal lumber brace to a base still. Braces must be fastened to each nailing plate with 16 d/nails, with at least one nail on each side of the mailing plate. Mail ends which protrude through the bracing lumber should be bent over, both for safety and added strength. The mails should be located so that they will not split wither the brace or the falsework timber.

Single Post Shores Safety Rules

  • Use manufactures recommended safe working loads consistent with the height from supporting sill to formwork.
  • Provide and maintain a solid footing to distribute maximum loads properly.
  • Plumb al post shores as the erection proceeds. Check plumb of post shores just prior to pour.
  • Check to see that all clamps, screws, pins and all other components are in a closed or engaged position.
  • Make certain that all base plates and shore heads are infirm contact with the footing sill and form material.
  • If motorized concrete equipment is to be used, be sure that post shores are spaced and braced with this fact I mind.
  • For stability, single post shores shall have adequate bracing provided in the longitudinal transverse and diagonal directions. Bracing shall be installed as the shores are being erected.
  • Devices which attach to the external lateral stability bracing shall be securely fastened to the single post shores.
  • Single post shores more than one tier high should not be used. Where greater shore heights are required consult the supplier.
  • Adjustment of single post shores to raise formwork shall not be made after concrete is in place.
  • Avoid eccentric loads on u-heads and top plates by centering stringers on those members.
  • Use special precautions when shoring from or to sloped surfaces.
  • Reshoring procedure should be approved by a qualified engineer.
  • No not back-off or strip post shores until proper authority is given.
  • Use lumber stresses consistent with age, type, and condition of available lumber to be used. Use only lumber that is in good condition.
