Falseworks: Friction Collar
Falsework: Friction Collars
When the penetration of an existing structure is not a viable option for whatever reason, the support of loads with the use of friction can be an effective alternative falsework approach.
Wadco has fabricated friction collars in a variety of shapes, sizes and capacities. Whether round, conical, square, pyramidal, octagonal or some other shape the use of a custom friction collar may be the solution to your shoring needs.
The use of screwjacks to facilitate the accurate grading and controled stipping of falsework is commonly incorporated in the collar design. Since screwjacks can not be adjusted while loaded, hydraulic jacks are used during the stripping process to remove the loads from the screwjacks, enabling them to be released.
The important component associated with the use of friction collars is the necessity
