The next generation in bracing systems, Supershaft Plus has been designed using our engineering expertise to offer large clear spans of up to 25m, allowing greater areas of clear space within large excavations.
Mabey Hire Supershaft Plus is a uniquely fabricated beam, designed using our engineering expertise to offer large clear spans, allowing greater areas of clear space within large excavations.
The bracing system is so strong that it can either completely remove or significantly reduce the requirement for bracing struts or knee braces.
This bracing system has been successfully used in projects to achieve clear spans of 25m allowing the installation of large tanks.
Supershaft Plus has an external working range from 3000mm to 25300mm. For more information on minimum and maximum working ranges see our Groundworks Support Brochure.

Kirkthorpe, one of the largest hydroelectric power schemes in Yorkshire, uses the flow of the River Calder to generate the equivalent consumption of 800 households per year. The development required a sheet piled cofferdam to construct a permanent concrete structure.Find out more
Situated on the harbour front, the wastewater system for Stranraer and the surrounding areas was deemed outdated and in need of replacement. Part of the project involved the construction of a new pipe, requiring a frame for the cofferdam.Find out more
The grocer Morrisons planned to expand with a new superstore, forecourt and petrol station in Gloucester as part of their UK store roll-out. We were approached to advise on the temporary works in a very tightly timed build programme.Find out more
During the creation of a new petrol filling station for supermarket chain Morrisons in Wisbech, our groundworks systems provided the perfect solution.Find out more
In Edinburgh, pressure-relieving valves (PRVs) that were not working properly had led to major flooding in the area. Scottish Water needed our ground support to help the installation of two new PRVs and connecting pipework.Find out more
