We offer one of the largest fleets of hydraulic jacks and ancillaries in the UK, with an extensive range of jacking equipment available for straight hire or as part of a design for any construction project.
We're the only temporary works specialist to have a dedicated hydraulics team - whom combined have over 65+ years experience with hydraulic jacking systems between them.
Our specialist team of hydraulic experts will design a jacking solution tailored to your application e.g. synchronised hydraulic jacks to lift a bridge.Our hydraulics team also operate and install all our fleet of jacks, removing any element of risk for our customers.
Our range has been developed to provide the construction industry with an unrivalled service for the controlled application of high load hydraulic systems.
For each construction or engineering project with a hydraulic jacking element, our Project Engineers and Hydraulic Technicians will design and detail the full jacking system, tailoring layout, hydraulic pressurising and control systems best suited to the specific application.
Our range of jacking equipment is available for hire with hydraulic jacks supplied for a variety of applications including building refurbishment, sliding, monitoring & control, and most commonly bridge jacking.
We ensure all jacking systems work to the best possible standards prior to hire. Our hydraulics experts inspect every jack at our extensive in-house testing and calibration facility, making sure equipment is fully tested and certified and issued with a calibration certificate.
We've helped deliver thousands of bridging projects across the UK's road and rail network with bridge jacking support. Our jacking engineers consider the full scope of the project, making an assessment to deliver the project with minimal disruption and cost.
Our bridge jacking support covers a wide range of applications, from planned maintenance for bearing replacement works to deck support lifts to enable concrete casting for a new bridge. Or even emergency bridge strike repairs to damaged piers - we have an Emergency response team available 24/7, 365 days a year with a fleet of jacking specialists and bridge jacking solutions. So, whatever the project we can help!
Our hydraulic jacks can be computer controlled, ideal for applications such as bridge lifts, providing a safe jacking solution. Together with our structural monitoring solutions, be assured that any movement can be rectified immediately.
Our hydraulic jacks are compatible with many of our propping ranges:
