These prefabricated transoms are manufactured with integrated end connections which are fixed to both the standards and ledgers. As these connections are typically stronger than those of tube and putlog (single) couplers, it is possible in many cases to erect a scaffold with prefabricated structural transom units which do not require ledger bracing. Full guidance on their use can be found in the current edition of the NASC Technical Guidance Note TG20.
Available in four different width configurations, this component is adjustable, giving maximum on-site flexibility. They are designed for use as an intermediate board bearing transom, which has an extendable section for inside board support. The units are available with or without the welded wedge connection device.
Used as an alternative method of supporting inside boards at the standards. These units are available in two and three board widths.
This product is manufactured from a re-cyclable high strength-to-density ratio polyethylene (HDPE), giving maximum strength with minimum weight. They are manufactured in moulded sections, 110cm (43″) long, tapering from 50cm (20″) diameter to 40cm (16″) diameter. Hung from a galvanised steel bracket, connected using integrated chains, with a special top hopper entry chute, sections form a continuous chute for debris – avoiding risk of injury. Additional entry points can be made using a special side entry section.
Larger diameters may be available.
Used at the base of a scaffold tower in place of base plates, castors enable you to create a mobile structure. Fitted with a securing bolt and hand-tightening wheel-lock, these castors come complete with a rubber tyre.
Safe working load: 535kg
As there is no vertical adjustment, this product should only be used on level surfaces.
Conforming to BS 1692, the Gin Wheel has a diameter of 254mm and is fitted with low friction sealed bearings, assisting in the efficient hoisting of materials on site. This product comes complete with a swivel round eye, which allows a standard diameter scaffold tube to pass through, giving a simple connection point to the scaffold. Advice on the fitting of Gin Wheels can be found in the current edition of the NASC’s Guidance Note TG20.
Product Testing: A certificate of conformity is issued with each Gin Wheel.
Safe working load: 250kg (this does not take into account the capacity of the supporting structure).
In order to provide leading edge protection before, during and after loading of materials onto a loading bay, a loading bay gate must be used.
Available for both traditional and system scaffold in various different sizes.
Coloured in a high-visibility yellow, the self-closing, spring-loaded steel gate is used to allow safe access to and from the working platform, where a ladder access is provided.
Used to provide cover for ladder access openings created in working platforms. The trapdoor is secured to the adjacent toe board and clipped into the vertical position when access is required.
Galvanised steel temporary pedestrian barriers are ideal for exhibitions, festivals, concerts, and demarcation on construction sites.
Produced in a galvanised steel finish, these heavy duty anti-climb barriers are ideal for use at exhibitions, festivals, concerts, and construction sites.
These galvanised steel hoarding panels are ideal for creating temporary barriers at exhibitions, festivals, concerts, and demarcation construction sites, where privacy may be an issue or an extra level of security is required.
From spanners and ratchets to magnetic levels and measuring tapes, we stock a full choice of tools, belts and tool holders to compliment our comprehensive range of scaffolding products. Please call your local depot for more information.
A cost-effective method advertising, which can be prominently displayed on the scaffold structure. This is the simplest and most effective way to advertise, simply insert your sign and attach the board frame to your scaffold. Frames are available in two sizes: 20″x30″ and 24″x 36″.
The SCAFFTAG system is a means for recording and displaying pertinent information about your scaffold, including inspection frequency and its current use.
We can also provide the LADDERTAG system, safety signs to let people know that a scaffold is incomplete, or men are working overhead.
Please call your local depot for more information.
Various scaffold harnesses and lanyards are available off the shelf, or to order.
Please call your local depot for information.
Protectors cover exposed ends of tubes and fitting threads, helping to increase awareness and avoid pedestrian injuries.
Steel bins are required to store, transport, and crane-lift scaffold fittings and small components.
Post pallets, sometimes known as stillages, are used to store, move or lift longer equipment.
Brick guards are mesh screens which are a safety measure that can be attached to the guardrails on the working lifts of a scaffold. They provide protection from falling materials passing through the guardrails and falling into areas below. Several types are available in either galvanised steel or lightweight plastic.
A solid steel plate used to cover small excavations, or uneven surfaces.
This system uses a proprietary step which is fixed to the main guardrail, to create a temporary platform approximately 1.0m above the working platform. These enable the scaffolder to erect the guardrail protection on the lift above in advance, or remove them during the dismantle process.
