APAC Provides One Stop Solution for Your Compression Post Systems Fabrication
Compression Post Systems are used to install edge protection between concrete slabs and in other situations on construction sites. They are mainly used in concrete floors and soffits, but can also be provided for fixing some steel frames.
The method of Compression Post System can be used to install mesh panels in height or multiple heights or to install lower panels with additional soft nets on the soffit without anchors.
Using compression posts in conjunction with mesh barriers and containment nets enables fully covered opening systems to be achieved. The mesh barrier stops debris and material from entering or leaving the floor and the construction safety barrier acts as a collective fall protection
Compression Posts can be easily installed by extending the inner tube to the ceiling and securing the temporary edge protection systems and then activating the compression function using a screw adjustment.
APAC’s Compression Post System components are used to provide similar edge protection to anchoring or bolting methods, but with a different and faster-fixing principle.
APAC’s compression post system is fixed between the concrete floors and soffits without anchors to provide a faster installation process.
APAC has designed its compression post system, the key element of this system is the design and operation of the adjustable compression post, which is securely positioned and locked into place from the standing position and then compressed between the concrete floors and soffits through a threaded screw.
APAC temporary works designers make the user satisfaction of the capability of the concrete slabs to sustain the force imposed on them by the operation of the securing mechanism on the compression post system.
Installation of the compression post systems will often be necessary on leading slab edges, as the posts are not physically anchored or bolted like other edge protection products, care should be taken to ensure that the locking action is securely in place to prevent movement.
In certain situations it may be advisable that these compression posts are anchored at the base, for example, tall floor to soffit heights, or where wind loading is likely to be increased such as when using debris netting.
The Compression Post System components are lightweight and easy to fix, well placed to limit any possibility of people or material falling,and easy to install on the leading slab edges.
The posts for the compression post system are hot-dipped galvanized surface finishing, Powder coating surface, and zinc plated/electroplated surface is available also.
As we know some companies in the market use the shoring prop/screw prop as the compression post, frankly speaking, 6 years ago, we did the same thing. But according to our experience, it is not a good idea. That is why we designed our compression post system in the year 2018.
Compared to the shoring prop, the compression post can be installed faster and is lightweight, can save the workers energy, and improve productivity.
