Metal Shorings for door frames

Metal perforated shoring is the necessary companion of internal and external door frames in modern buildings, as it accomplishes:

  • Fast and permanent placing with low labour cost
  • Convenient transportation
  • Competitive prices

Metal replaces old-style wood or chipboard shorings, which, due to corrosion from wall plaster humidity, caused the following problems when removed:

Damage to the plaster edges plus the resulting restoration cost
Crooked placing of the frames
During frame placing, wall remains not plastered at the junction and thus cannot be sealed to prevent water damage.

When using metal perforated shoring we achieve:

1. Creating a solid base for plaster
2. Apart from the main supports, the metal mesh at the edge of the shoring helps its bonding with the plaster
3. There are no breaks in the plaster-shoring junction due to its bonding with the mesh
4. Wall is evenly thick
5. Correct size of opening (in height and width)
6. Having a fixed and final frame size, we can immediately begin construction without delaying for the walls to be completed first.
7. Defining the corners of the opening, it helps the plasterer
8. There is no threat of rusting at the junctions as it requires no welding
9. Inner door frames can be placed at the site after the painting of the walls, after all potentially dangerous for door frames work required is completed (plastering, tiling, mortar, moving), and thus not be in danger of being unintentionally hit or scratched beyond repair from other work crews.
