What is Shotcrete Shoring
Shotcrete is a high velocity application of concrete onto a vertical or overhead surface. The impact of the concrete against the target surface creates an excellent bond and is much easier to apply to complex forms and shapes compared to traditional concrete placement.
Shoring is the temporary or permanent support of a structure that is weak or unstable.
Shotcrete shoring uses sprayed concrete (shotcrete) to reinforce the perimeter of the project area. Anchors may be drilled and installed to hold the shotcrete in place. Many construction projects need to be shored up to prevent soil from falling into the site. Taking these measures at the beginning of a project ensures that all workers are safe.
Why Use Shotcrete Shoring?
In many situations, shotcrete outperforms traditional concrete placement. It has high tensile strength, better thermal efficiency and can be applied to almost any surface. And because it requires less formwork than conventional concrete, applications of shotcrete can be completed much quicker than when traditional methods are used.
