Paratech has two shoring systems for structural support, the AcmeThread shoring system, and the LongShore shoring system. The AcmeThread is the smaller of the two systems, lighter and more mobile at the cost of some load capacity. The LongShore system is one of the strongest shoring systems on the market with increased load capacities, but larger and slightly heavier.

When combined with Paratech’s extensive array of structural shoring accessories, there is no better way to support a compromised structure and limit load movement. Paratech offers dozens of heads, bases and other additions to expand functionality and ensure rescuers have exactly what they need, and much much more.

AcmeThread Rescue Strut System

The Paratech AcmeThread Struts are comprised of a 2½” diameter Acme threaded aluminum movable solid shaft that extends out of a 3” diameter aluminum tube. The AcmeThread is a square thread that allows full surface contact of the shaft through the collar and the collar full surface contact on the tube to transfer the load directly to the ground. AcmeThread Struts can be extended manually or pneumatically with air, carbon dioxide, or nitrogen.

LongShore Rescue Strut System

The Paratech LongShore Struts are comprised of a 3” diameter threaded aluminum movable shaft that extends out of a 3½” diameter aluminum tube. The square thread allows full surface contact of the shaft through the collar and the collar full surface contact on the tube to transfer the load directly to the ground. LongShore Struts can be extended manually or pneumatically with air, carbon dioxide or nitrogen. LongShore rescue struts are the perfect choice for exceptionally heavy loads or longer length shores
