Falseworks: Pipe Shoring - Shore Caps

Shore caps are a recent innovation to pipe falsework systems used in bridge construction. Their intended purpose enables pipe falsework columns to be square-cut to appropriate elevations while still allowing for structure crossfalls and/or super elevations.

Shore caps have been fabricated to accommodate either single or dual pipe diameters with a choice of top plates that swivel in a single axis or universally.

We have previously manufactured shore caps in the following sizes and capacities:
