Steel Shoring with Telescopic Shore
Telescopic shores are a crucial part of steel shoring, providing essential support for ships, bulkheads, and doors. These telescopic shores are used in square shoring (The shoring utilised to support the ship’s side, bulkhead or door) to serve as a “breast shore” and in vertical shoring (The shoring used to support the deck or hatch) as vertical shores.
Telescopic shores are designed to be adjustable and flexible, making them ideal for a variety of applications. With their easy installation and quick setup time, telescopic shores are becoming increasingly popular among shipbuilders around the world.
This shore is very easy to use and is available in 3 sizes.
- The smallest size is 0.4m which can be extended up to 0.6m
- Medium size is 1.0m which can be extended up to 1.7m
- The large size is 1.5m which can be extended up to 2.5m
Procedure for Use
- Remove the shore from the stowage and take it to the place of damage.
- Remove the pin on the movable part of the shore.
- Place the Splinter Box on the damage and adjust the shore length between the proud shore and the Splinter Box.
- Drop the pin in the slot of the movable part which can fix the length just short of the length between the proud shore and splinter box.
- Tighten the rotating handles on the threaded portion of the shore till the Splinter Box stays without any support.
Safety Precautions for Steel Shoring
- Check the pin is connected to the chain properly.
- Do not drop the shore, as it can injure a person.
- Clean the parts such as threads, the handle, and the locking pin.
- Need to grease the threads regularly.
