Grid Shoring

Grid shores, one of the types of shoring bars are generally used in the machinery spaces and where there is no place for erecting the proud shore. This has a fixed leg and an adjustable leg. The legs can be fixed to the transverse frames of the ship and the adjustable sliding spindle on the centre can hold the Splinter Box against the damage.
