Lightweight wall props for Ritek installation in Victoria
Aged Care Facility construction project
Our customer secured the contract to build an aged care facility in Victoria. This particular design called for a fast & lightweight build using JHS Ritek Walling Systems.
Ritek pre-fabricated permanent formwork panels are made from lightweight fibre cement sheet, bonded to a composite stud assembly. This system is quick and easy to install on site, and is subsequently core-filled with reinforced structural concrete to achieve load-bearing walls that are fire and sound rated.
For this project, the contractor required a series of suitable wall props that were purpose-designed to support lightweight wall systems like JHS Ritek. Being a certified Ritek wall installer, the contractor approached Jaybro for wall props that were suitable for this application.
Jaybro supplied 600 light tilt wall props, an ideal solution for prefabricated wall systems like Ritek, as well as being suitable for Dincel and AFS Rediwall systems.
These specialist plasterboard tilt props are made for lightweight walls, measuring 2400mm long and extending up to 2940mm. Constructed from hot-dipped galvanised steel for strength and durability, they provide a secure and reliable support.
The diagonal wall braces are ideal for bracing walls and columns, thereby maintaining precision alignment of the panels during concrete pour. They allow for fine adjustment of angles to ensure you achieve the ideal placement on site for your unique project.
With plates at the top and bottom to allow for screw fixing, these props are best kept fixed in place until the concrete slab above is poured in-situ.
