PEP Ergo Tubular Steel Slab Props

The galvanized tubular steel slab prop with up to 50 kN load-bearing capacity
PERI PEP Ergo Slab Props: The shape of the lowering nut shows the direction for lowering when under load and allows damagefree and gentle lowering of materials.
PERI PEP Ergo Slab Props: In addition to the tripod, the PRK frame can be used as an assembly aid.


PEP Ergo Props are mainly used for supporting slab formwork. Numerous practical features ensure fast and safe handling – this includes, for example, the trendsetting Adjusting Nut or the ergonomic G-Hook which cannot jam. The galvanization guarantees a long service life. However, if a prop is damaged during the tough everyday working operations on the jobsite, the inner and outer tubes can be replaced separately.

The capacity factor – defined as the load-bearing capacity to prop weight ratio – can reach up to 70% above the values of comparable slab props. High capacity means less props! The props have been developed in compliance with the Euro standard and have the approval of the DIBt (German Institute for Building Technology). They fully comply with Load Class B, D and E of EN 1065. Max. load-bearing capacity of up to 50 kN.

The complete galvanization of all surfaces guarantees a long service life.

Load-bearing capacity far beyond the norm
Prop load up to 50 kN – with a comparatively low dead weight
(PEP Ergo E-300: G = 19.4 kg; max. F = 50.4 kN)

Quickly adjusted
The 12 cm long adjustment range eliminates frequent re-positioning whilst the measuring scale on the inner tube accelerates length pre-adjustments

Simple connections
Prop heads can be attached to both the inner and outer tubes

Trendsetting Adjusting Nut
The shape of the Lowering Nut shows the direction for lowering when under load while the captive handgrip allows easy adjustment
