Company’s trademark product — often copied but never bettered


Shisham pioneered the Square Push Pull Props — call them tilt panel braces, props, push pulls, whatever you like.

Since 1977, more than 80,000 Shisham Push Pull Props have proven themselves in the field. During that time, panels and loads have grown as architects and builders continued to push the frontiers in tilt slab construction.

The company has improved the design, expanded the range, and adapted its approach to meet every challenge faced.

Reassuringly, many things have stayed the same, simply because they were right in the first place, and they’re still right today.

Things such as the company’s trademark reinforced 16mm steel foot are often copied, but never bettered.

And they are still square instead of round because, kilo for kilo, square is safer than round.

How does the company know this? Shisham has the only purpose-built prop testing rig capable of testing units up to 16 metres in length unto destruction.

The square-shaped prop can be much smaller, lighter and easier to use than a round-shaped one. They’re also more stable and stackable, which makes transportation between sites easier.


Individually certified props

Each prop is individually certified, and the versatility and strength of these props are proving popular in the New Zealand construction industry.

Total Site Supplies is the only supplier of Shisham props in New Zealand, and they stock parts and accessories from shims to panel sealants.

Call Total Site Supplies — whether you want to purchase or hire, they can arrange to send the props directly to your site nationwide.
