The enormously popular Acrow prop has become a household name in the construction industry but the product has not always been so popular.

Swiss-born inventor, William de Vigier invented the Acrow prop in the 1930s. He used his last £50 to set up a small workshop making steel props in London’s East End in 1935.

The props would revolutionise the building trade. Previously, workers had relied on time-consuming wooden pole scaffolding that had to sawn to fit each individual job.

But construction workers did not trust these new adjustable steel props. For three months sales were slow until a handful of builders started to buy the props.

Within just four years more than 40,000 Acrow props were in use daily on construction sites across the UK.

This product is perfect for taking the strain. They are so easy to install and can be used on supporting walls, ceilings, floors and temporary beams.

Dealing with supporting walls is always a tricky task but don’t take the risk and leave it to chance, hire Acrow props and take the weight off your shoulders.
