Application

This Technical Data Sheet is designed to provide information of sufficient content and detail as to enable engineers,
competent in structural analysis & structural steelwork design to safely design structures incorporating Kwikstage Shoring.

Design Codes

Kwikstage Shoring is a modular system primarily for use in temporary works and as such complies with the following codes:-

BS 449:1969 inc. 1989 Amendment - Specification for the use of Structural Steel in Buildings
BS 5975:2008 - Code of Practice for Temporary Works Procedures and the Permissible Stress Design of Falsework

Eurocodes

The equipment is currently being assessed to Eurocodes. Strengths relating to these codes will be published in a future
revision to this document. Please refer to Mabey Hire Ltd. engineering team for the latest information.

Safe Working Loads

The casting and wedge fitting at the end of a Shoring Tie combine to create a very rigid connection between the horizontal and
vertical members of the Kwikstage Shoring System.
The rigidity enables improved load capacities to be obtained in standards compared with those achievable when Kwikstage
Ledgers or Propping Ties are used.
A minimum of two Shoring Ties connected at right angles at set positions up a standard provide sufficient restraint to allow
these increased loads to be justified.
An extensive and exhaustive testing programme has achieved verification of theoretical load capacities.
Shoring Ties are normally placed in the highest and lowest possible sets of V pressings on a standard. In certain cases the
second set of V pressings may be used, but allowable loads are much reduced.

Product Use

For the handling and use of Kwikstage Shoring, please refer to Sections 3.0 to 6.0.

2.1 Standards

2.1.1 Details

The Standards are fabricated from standard steel scaffold tube to BS EN 39:2001.
The two types of standards are identified by, Standards which have a device (spigot) at one end to allow the standards to be
connected end to end, and an Open Ended Standard which allows the use of U Heads and Base J acks at either end.
Each type of standard has V pressings attached, 4No. around the circumference of the tube, at right angles to each other,
and at 495mm vertical centers along the tube.

The V pressings allow the Shoring Ties to be connected to the standards.

2.1.3 Load Capacity - Axial

The maximum axial capacity is 55kN.










2.1.4 Standards Capacity End Details

Application of the load at the ends of the Standards should be through a standard U Head or Base J ack.

The primary beam, passing through the U Head should be centralised in the U head using timber wedges or similar.

If no wedges are to be used then the U Head should be turned so that opposite flanges of the U head are touching the sides
of the primary beam. This ensures that the primary beam is central in the U Head.

Otherwise the capacity of the Adjustable U Head will then be limited by eccentric loading.

2.2 Braces

2.2.1 Shoring Ties

The Shoring Ties are horizontal members, which are connected to the V pressings on the Standards with a quick-acting
positive wedge fitting. The holes in the cast ends provide automatic node point location for the Shoring Trigger Braces.

















2.2.2 Trigger Braces

These provide nodal triangulation of panels and transfer horizontal loads to the bottom of the Falsework via standards.

2.3.3 Load Capacity Base and Head Jacks

The following graphs give permissible combinations of jack extension, horizontal loading and axial load for which no restraint is
required, for both standard and sloping head and base jack configurations. In sloping conditions, the average jack extension in
a run of legs may be taken to establish, from the graphs, whether there is a need to provide restraint.
The maximum leg load on any leg in the run must be used for this purpose, and bracing provided to resist the total horizontal
force. This is because the introduction of braces into the scaffolding creates stiff zones, which will attract load in preference to
the jacks, which need theoretically to move slightly before they mobilize their resistance to horizontal load.

2.0 Section Properties, Capacities & Weights
NB: The most economical leg make-up
for a Shoring scheme may sometimes be
achieved by fixing the top and bottom row of
Shoring Ties in the second cluster of V pressing
of a standard.

The allowable load in such a situation is
dependant upon the jack extension, the type of U
head being used and whether or not the jack is
braced. The stem of the jack is always situated
above the Shoring Ties fixed in the second cluster
of V pressings and consequently the strength of
the length of the standard above the Shoring Tie
level determines the load capacity of the system.

Graph 11 shows the relationship
between the jack extension and the allowable
axial load for the Shoring U Head, when in
conjunction with a Adjustable Stem in a braced
condition.

If the head is not braced, the allowable
loads reduce dramatically as would be expected,
but the values are still sufficient for use in lightly
loaded areas of the Shoring system, such as
access ways at the edge of Falsework for a bridge
structure.

4.0 Bracing of Adjustable U Heads

Bracing of U Heads and/or Bases is time consuming and is therefore best avoided wherever possible. If possible, select a leg
configuration which keeps the runouts less than 300mm at the U Heads and less than 425mm at the Bases, and then
determine the safe leg loads taking into account any eccentricity of loading and runout. The next best option is to extend the
bases and introduce bracing at the bottom where it is easier to fit. In cases where the slope of the soffit exceeds 1:15, please
consult Mabey Hire Ltd. for advice. All of the examples shown below may require additional bracing depending on the
horizontal loading requirements.

Level Soffit Formwork


Example where leg loads are such that no bracing is
required
Example where bracing is required: Primaries lace U
Heads in one direction Shoring J ack Brace lace U Heads
in other direction. Shoring J ack Brace as Diagonals
required in both directions typically every 6
th
U-Head.
Sloping Primaries (Slope Less Than 1:15)

5.0 Eccentric Loadings

Eccentric loading should be AVOIDED unless its effects have been taken into account in the design.
Eccentric loading can be induced in a number of situations:


a) At the U Heads from the Formwork Above
b) At the Bases from Uneven
or Sloping Ground
c) In the Uprights from
Horizontal Load Bearing
Ledgers

Plan and Side View
Primaries in the Shoring U head

5.1 Arrangement of Primary Members to Ensure Concentric Loading on Supports

Similar principles can be applied when proprietary products are used for secondary and/or primary bearers. For example,
when used as primaries, Soldiers can be bolted together end to end to make them continuous through the U Heads.
5.0 Eccentric Loadings
Random length primary Shutter Beams should not span more than 3

6.0 Erection of Kwikstage Shoring

6.0.1 Ground Work

Kwikstage Shoring is usually erected on substantial timber sole boards, timber sleepers or sheet piles to spread the load from
the standard. These may be bedded and haunched with lean mix concrete to further spread the load, prevent accidental
movement and eliminate foundation washout during inclement weather.
If the ground is sloping the foundation will need to accommodate the resultant horizontal forces.

6.0.2 Setting Out

Set out the shoring grid lines.
The setting out, for the Falsework, would normally be provided by the Main Contractor.

6.0.3 Erecting the Kwikstage

Before commencing work, users should ensure that they have:

A working drawing properly prepared by a suitable qualified & experienced person
Prepared a method statement and carried out a risk assessment for the work
Suitably qualified & experienced personnel to carry out the work
Inspected the equipment before use and rejected any damaged items
Checked that the foundations are at the correct levels and have suitable strength for the imposed loadings
Checked that there is sufficient striking height in the make up
Provided access equipment
Provided an adequate supply of good quality timber wedges, packing, etc.


Stage 1 Build a Single 4 Leg Braced Bay
1a) Erect the First Leg
1b) Add the Second Leg 1c) Add a Third Leg 1d) Complete the First Bay



Set Adjustable base to
the correct runout. Add
an Standard (spigot
uppermost)
Add the second leg &
connect the pair with
Shoring Ties.
Add a third leg & connect
with Shoring Ties.
Add a fourth leg, level and then
connect with Shoring Ties.
Fit diagonal Trigger Brace.

Stage 2 Extend the Grid Sideways in Plan



Stage 3 Add the Next Vertical Lift(s) Stage 4 Add the Final Vertical Lift & Adjustable U Head


Due regard should be made for operatives working at height.
Safe access must be installed for the next lift(s). Note that the
SWL on a Shoring Tie acting as a board support is 150kg.
Add the next lift of Standards, bracing them as they are
installed.
Add the final vertical lift, which consists of open-ended
uprights to receive the adjustable U Heads. Fit the U heads
and adjust to the required runout. Install the formwork in the
U Heads and adjust and level. If the scheme requires, fit
Shoring J ack Braces to the Shoring U heads.

6.0.4 Dismantling the Kwikstage

The Kwikstage Shoring system can be dismantled by reversing the procedures outlined on these pages.
Dismantled components should NOT be dropped from a height as this may damage the equipment.
6.0 Erection of Kwikstage Shoring
If the scheme requires, fit Shoring J ack Braces to
Adjustable Bases using a Shoring Adapter.
Use a similar method to that shown in Stage 1
to add more legs to the grid.
