A-Deck System



A-Deck is a post, joist and drop-head handset shoring system designed to maximize labor productivity and reduce formwork cycle time. The primary components include high capacity post shores with drop heads, aluminum girders and LVL joists. The A-Deck system provides a high level of productivity through the use of a 6’ x 8’ grid pattern, easy to handle components, and drop-heads for early retrieval and cycling of joists, girders and plywood. The ability to install the system from the ground with simple light-weight components results in added safety and overall ease of use.

  • Post shores can accommodate soffit heights from 6’-11” to 11’-7”, or up to 14’-5” with available extension

  • Can support a 12” thick concrete slab on 6’ x 8’ grid throughout entire post range, including use of extension (up to 15’-5” finished floor to finished floor)

  • Can support slabs up to 48” thick throughout post range with standard equipment

  • Drop-head allows for early retrieval of joists, girders and untrapped plywood while loaded post shore remains intact

  • 6’ x 8’ grid pattern reduces the amount of post shores required, reduces installation time, and is well suited for the use of 4’ x 8’ plywood sheets

  • Joists and girders are individually identified by length to facilitate identification on the job site

  • Fast cycling of equipment by means of fast-actuating drop-head, racks, baskets and carts

  • Hammer is only tool needed to install and strip system
