What is Emergency Shoring?

Emergency shoring is a temporary support system used to stabilize a structure in emergencies. This could include natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, or floods, or man-made disasters like building collapses or explosions. The purpose of shoring is to prevent further damage and collapse, providing a safe environment for rescue and recovery efforts to take place.

Protecting Against Further Damage

The longer a damaged structure remains unsupported, the higher the risk of further damage and collapse. Emergency shoring provides immediate support to the structure, preventing it from collapsing and causing more damage. It also helps to stabilize the structure and prevent it from shifting or settling, which can cause additional structural damage. By quickly implementing emergency shoring, we can prevent a small problem from turning into a major disaster.

Ensuring the Safety of People and Property

Not only does emergency shoring protect the structure, but it also ensures the safety of the people and property around it. In the event of a building collapse, emergency shoring can create a safe space for rescue workers to enter and rescue any trapped individuals.
