A key element of the NUDURA product lineup is the NUDURA® Propping System which is installed during icf  construction process, typically at the third course of forms. This system is a multi-purpose set of components that ensures during the  icf constriction process the forming system has support during concrete placement, while also providing a safe working platform for the installer. As with any scaffold system, safety must always be monitored on the project. The installer needs to be aware of, and understand, all safety codes and regulations with respect to spacing, planking, and safety rails. The Prop system has been designed to support the weight of the workers, wind loads, and the weight of the NUDURA wall only. Should the prop system be used for things other than icf construction, it may result in failure and possibly bodily harm to the workers using the system.

The NUDURA Prop System has been tested to meet all safety standards for North America, and most European Countries. Should a safety authority request documentation regarding the alignment system and its conformance to the local safety code during the construction process with NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms, this is available through the local distributor for the installer’s area. Should the use of the alignment system fall outside of the general safety code conformance, site specific engineering will be required.

NUDURA Distributors can assist in all aspects when it comes to the NUDURA Prop system and its use during the icf construction process. NUDURA also provides detailed instruction of how to properly install and use the prop system during icf construction with NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms.
