Paratech’s aluminum alloy AcmeThread, and Long Shore strut systems are hard coat anodized to reduce electrical conductivity and increase strength and durability. The aircraft grade aluminum components of Paratech struts are the best balance of strength and weight, giving rescuers maximum mobility and versatility. All Paratech structural shoring struts use a locking-collar on square threaded screw shaft design to ensure all components of the strut system transfer load evenly from the point of load contact all the way to the ground, and always default to the locked position.
Paratech offers a full compliment of bases and accessories to ensure the struts can function in any needed shoring configuration. Braces and clamps allow rescuers to tie multiple struts together to form lace-posts, rakers, flying rakers, vertical or horizontal shores and sloped floor shores. Paratech’s pneumatic control equipment can extend struts with air. Paratech also supplies full Urban Search and Rescue shoring kits for a one-stop shop complete shoring package.
Paratech Mechanical Adjustable Bracing is designed to support in both compression as well as tension applied forces. The B23 and B57 connect to struts via a clamp and clevis for use in Rakers, Flying Rakers, Sloped Floor Shores and more. With Paratech adjustable bracing, you can completely remove wood and save time.
