"Propping is something that many builders need on various construction sites and acrow props are a perfect solution which can help make the work area safer for everyone.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
(Melbourne, Victoria 3000) -- Preston Hire is announcing publicly today that renting instead of buying Acrow Props can benefit builders by saving money, increasing cash flow, reducing the need for yard storage space, and allowing builders to focus on the construction.
Steven Preston, media contact, was recently quoted as saying, "Buying construction equipment is quite an expense especially if it is only going to be used temporarily. New builders or those needing to cut costs can certainly do that by renting rather than buying equipment."
Asked about the benefits of using acrow props, Mr. Preston said, "Propping is something that many builders need on various construction sites and acrow props are a perfect solution which can help make the work area safer for everyone. The number one reason to use the props is the safety of the builder's crew. The props are simple and easy to use and can help make a potentially unsafe area safer. In addition, it makes the work-site much easier to access so that the crew can complete the work faster and because time is money, builders end up making more since they can go on to their next job sooner."
Acrow props are strong, lightweight and can be easily adjusted to the correct height. Preston Hire's props can be used for new construction, existing construction, and older buildings. The props have been in existence since the early 1930s and have become very popular since they are temporary and can be moved once the building or construction area is finished or repaired.

The props also come in 5 different sizes from the smallest No.0’s which start at 1.041 metres through to largest No.4’s which can go as high as 4.876 metres. An Acrow prop can hold as much as 42 kN, but as the prop is extended the maximum weight it can hold reduces. Preston Hire can help builders determine how many props they need to rent based on the size of the construction area which needs propping and the loads that need to be supported.
Besides the obvious safety reasons for using the props, what are some other benefits? "When companies rent the props and other equipment for a construction job, it is 100 percent tax deductible against the project it was rented for", Mr. Preston added.
