Atlas A-DECK™


It is a safe, fast and efficient post & joist handset shoring system that requires minimal labor to set-up and strip. The unique, hammer actuated drop head provides a 4" drop to easily remove the aluminum girders and LVL joists, while the post shore remains in-tact. This allows rapid cycling of the joists, girders & plywood to the next pour. The high capacity post shore accomodates floor to soffit heights from 6'11" to 15'5", with a 14 kip load capacity at 9'. The post shores are spaced in a 6' x 8' grid pattern, minimizing the amount of shores needed on the job and maximizing plywood re-usage. There are only 5 basic components in the system and all of them weigh less than 50 lbs. The only tool needed to set-up and strip the system is a hammer.
