Aluminum Scaffold Shoring

The aluminum scaffold shoring system has been available for sev­eral years as a substitute for the steel scaffold shoring system. The system consists of several frames connected together by cross bracing. Aluminum shoring is lighter and has load-carrying capac­ity equal to or greater than steel shoring. Load-carrying capacity for aluminum shoring can reach 36,000 lb (160 kN). Despite the advantages of aluminum shoring, steel shoring systems are still widely used.
