PLETTAC METRIX is a revolutionary ring system, designed and produced with German engineering using the latest technologies, including 3D modelling, stress analysis software and state of the art manufacturing. Being a fully NASC compliant and CISRS approved system; it exceeds all necessary British and European standards.
The system has many advantages over other ring based systems and, as the name suggests, is completely metric. With bay lengths and breadths being divisible by one another, along with the system being completely tubular, PLETTAC METRIX is a highly adaptable modular system.
The Plettac rosette creates an incredibly strong and rigid joint, allowing up to 8 connections at various angles.
In addition, there is an exclusive optional Permanent Advanced Guardrail system which allows the scaffolders to work in complete safety from the level below, while complying fully with the NASC’s guidance note SG4.
Both of these unique features of the system lead to significant benefits, including reduced equipment levels, labour savings, decreased assembly times and improved safety.
PLETTAC METRIX’s horizontal members are divisible by a combination of other sizes, allowing the use of extra vertical members within the bay length or breadth. This unique feature increases the ease by which a scaffold can be adapted when necessary.
The concept of component divisibility allows for obstacles and protrusions to be easily overcome at the level they occur, rather than from ground level up. This, along with a great many of the components having a dual role, allows for a lower amount of specials being required and a greater stock utilisation.
The platforms of the PLETTAC METRIX system are formed using one of three types of deck; steel, aluminium or combined aluminium and plywood, with steel being the most common. All decks include built in lifting handles, wind-locks and anti-tilting devices.
Decks fit directly onto a tubular ledger / transom for ease of use and, unlike other ring systems, there is no requirement for additional u-transom or wind- locking components.
Plettac Metrix has a system exclusive, optional Permanent Advance Guardrail System, which stays in place for the whole duration of the project. These components are installed from the safety of the level below, giving a higher level of containment whilst providing collective, rather than personal, fall prevention for scaffolders.
The guardrail replaces three ledgers, therefore lowering the amount of components required, while increasing productivity.
For each bay size there is a corresponding colour code on the ledgers and the vertical diagonal brace, making each corresponding size easily identifiable, leaving no room for error in the preparation of works.
The simplicity and divisibility of the PLETTAC METRIX system means it is generally faster to erect, adapt and dismantle than other system scaffolds and can achieve times over 60% faster than conventional tube and fitting.
PLETTAC METRIX is designed and manufactured in Plettac's state of the art production facilities and meets the strict quality requirements of ISO 9001. Through calculation and independent testing, the system has proved to meet or exceed all the required criteria to satisfy both BS EN 12810 and BS EN 12811.
The system has passed the rigorous NASC audit process and is fully compliant with their Code of Practice. It is also a Construction Industry Scaffolder’s Record Scheme (CISRS) approved system, enabling recognised training to be undertaken.
Our experienced sales team can offer guidance to customers through on-site surveys and estimating.
