Why You’ve Discovered Prop Pal

For years, quality builders have had no choice but to work unprofessionally with the traditional unsafe makeshift methods of Strongboys and RSJ / box section needling for creating open plan living. It’s caused a lot of stress, mess and many sleepless nights (before we even mention the homes that have come crashing down) because it’s never been safe, easy or secure.

The mission of Prop Pal is to allow builders to work professionally and set standards when it comes to domestic structural alterations. Helping quality builders give themselves and the trade a better name with our products is at the core.

Prop Pal products make the job safe, easy and secure – the key elements – for builders to work professionally on domestic and small commercial structural alterations.

No more sleepless nights! Prop Pal provides the professional solution. The only needle support tools in the UK that supports 100% of BOTH the inner and outer leaf walls – vital to maintain structural integrity during structural alterations. Anything less than 100% support of both skins during a knock through and structural integrity is lost (all quality builders should have this knowledge). As an added bonus, Prop Pal makes the job a whole lot easier.

Can You Put A Price On Wall Support Safety?

At Prop Pal, we think you can.

Forget old fashioned

wall support methods

Unlike conventional and unsafe methods used in the building trade to date, the Prop Pal needle is designed so that a builder’s prop location into the needle is locked in position once it has been wound up.

At the other end the swivel plate has 4 holes where it can be fixed to the floorboards, securing it in position.

AND…Dual Application: The Prop Pal method (using the jacking screw plate) OR as a standard needle support (by adding the extra plates to the base of the jacking screw plate or by removing jacking screw plate from the main body).

Proof tested to

1050kg load

The Prop Pal needle is manufactured from S275 Structural Steel and has been proof tested to a safe load capacity of 1050kg.

To achieve this capacity means that it was given 25% of the proof testing capacity of 4200kg. So, a safe load of 1050kg is well within its capability. However, the safe working load should not be exceeded.

The old models of Prop Pal were given 1500kg (50% of 3000kg) so technically the new model MK3 PP1200 is far superior in strength but to comply with current regulations of 25% it has been certified with 1050kg.

Installation is

quick and easy

  • Minimal disturbance to flooring and ceiling when using the jacking screw plate
  • Length 1200mm creating more space for working around and installing steel beams
  • Acrow prop can slot in at both ends of the needle for extra security and stability
  • Dimensions of the needle (w: 170mm and d: 60mm) allows for Prop Pal needles to fit easily through the size of one brick – SWL 1050kg and made from S275 Structural Steel with coated rust-resistant components for greater durability and strength.
