PEP Ergo Slab Props


PEP Ergo Props are mainly used for supporting slab formwork. Numerous practical features ensure fast and safe handling – this includes, for example, the Adjusting Nut indicating the direction or the ergonomic G-Hook which does not jam.
Galvanization guarantees a long service life. However, if a prop does get damaged during the tough everyday working operations on the jobsite, the inner and outer tubes can be replaced separately.

PERI PEP Ergo Props are characterized by a further increase in load-bearing capacity and numerous trend-setting detailed solutions with low dead weight.

The capacity factor – defined as the load-bearing capacity to prop weight ratio – can reach up to 70 % above the values of comparable slab props. PERI PEP Ergo Props fully comply with Load Class B, D and E of EN 1065. The maximum load-bearing capacity is 50 kN.

The complete galvanisation of all surfaces guarantees a long service life.

Load-bearing capacity far beyond the norm
Prop load up to 50 kN – with a comparatively low dead weight
(PEP Ergo E-300+: G = 19.3 kg; max. F = 50.4 kN)

Quickly adjusted
The 12 cm long adjustment range eliminates frequent re-positioning whilst the measuring scale on the inner tube accelerates length pre-adjustments

Simple connections
Prop heads can be attached to both the inner and outer tubes

Trendsetting adjusting nut
The form of the lowering nut dictates the direction of lowering the load while the captive handgrip allows easy adjustment
