Alloy and steel prefabricated beams are essential scaffolding components which are required to carry out certain operations, such as:
- Forming a bridge in a scaffold structure.
- Creating suspended platforms.
- Erecting temporary roofs.
- Cantilever scaffolds.
- Strengthening the platforms of structure.
The type of beam chosen will be determined by the task they are required to carry out, and the load they expected to withstand. Alloy beams offer the benefit of being considerably lighter and easier to manually handle than their steel equivalents, although the aluminium used to form the beam is less stiff, therefore care must be taken to use a solution with sufficient load capacity.
