(Brace Hire)


PSA provides both internal and 3rd party services associated with bracing design and the supply of compliance certificates. Foot brace distance and brace insert points within the slab, would be nominated and in conjunction with the appropriate selection of ‘brace types’, the shop drawings can be generated. Our Queensland branch offers the service of panel brace hire, which can be extended through our Victorian branch. This includes a full range of sizes and capacities, which are maintained after each use and checked for conformance. Our branch also offers a range of installation products, such as grouts and epoxies, early bracing systems, and T-locks, to complement the brace hire. PSA can assist in pre-construction, site collaboration, on the design intent and offer assistance in brace type selection; (Mini, Standard, Jumbo, etc.) and further provide for all associated drawings for the erection and certification. Typical brace types and range of lengths and load capabilities are outlined in the table below. Ask one of our staff for assistance.
