Ground Supports


Ground Supports

We have two ground support systems available, Total Solutions Group OV30 and James Thomas Engineering 52cm Supertruss. We have all the components available to make these fixed or self- climbing. Both systems come with tower lifting arms to make building and striking as effortless as possible and reduce working at height.

The OV30 system is lightweight and extremely flexible. It uses 250Kg Prostar hoists which can be hidden within the truss to lift the system. The head blocks are a custom design made to fit into the tightest spaces and give the best visual appearance.

The JTE Supertruss system is one of the largest aluminium ground supports available. It can be built up to 18m x 18m with 10m high towers, and supports a distributed load of eight tonnes. Due to the large spans possible, the towers can be placed at the edges of rooms, leaving sight lines clear. Depending on loadings, cantilevers can be added to the ends of this structure to increase the length if required.

Our equipment includes:

  • Corner Blocks
  • Tower Hinges
  • Base Plates
  • Sleeve Blocks
  • Tower Head Blocks
  • Pick-up Beams
  • Tower Lifting Arms
