Bracing

With many precast elements, and panel elements in particular, there will be a need to provide temporary support in the form of braces or props to hold the element safely in position until the rest of the surrounding structure is complete and locks the element in its final position.

Reid provides a range of bracing anchor solutions:

  • RapidBrace (pre-installed)
  • BraceSet (post-installed)
